"My mother was an art teacher who enjoyed knitting and crochet work, and my grandmother was an experienced weaver. You could say my passion for the textile arts runs in the family!"
"My mother was an art teacher who enjoyed knitting and crochet work, and my grandmother was an experienced weaver. You could say my passion for the textile arts runs in the family!
"When I was 12 years old I won a scholarship to study at a school run by nuns. They taught us many things, including different crochet techniques.
"One of the reasons I enjoy this art form is that it relaxes me. My designs mirror the convergence of different cultures and traditions, since my mother is from Trujillo and my father from Huancavelica.
"I've been crocheting sweaters, shawls, and ponchos for most of my adult life. I love combining patterns and coming up with new designs.
"My life's journey has taken me down the path of education, and now I also teach. I love creating innovative models and new trends!
"I'm so excited about joining Novica, because they are giving me the opportunity to share my art and culture with you, and that in itself is further motivation for my work!" concludes Marianella with a smile.

Received my beautiful package today. I am excited to give this to my mother as a gift and the workmanship is grand. Even the package it arrived in was elegant. I will return for more of your products.
I received my ""Romance"" Shawl today. It is truly stunning and I am so glad that I purchased it! Such beautiful work! There is no other piece of clothing that makes a woman feel more feminine than a shawl. I shall truly treasure this. Thank you Marianella! Blessings,
Dear Marianella: My wife is very happy with her “Romantic” shawl. She says ""It's just magnificent. It’s soft and warm and so well made. I’m so proud to wear it. It feels wonderful to wear, very ladylike and elegant."" You are very talented. Please keep making such exquisite things that make her so happy. We in America appreciate your art. Elena and Chris
The black shawl ""Boheme"" is densely crocheted, enough to be warm. The border accented in a pumpkin orange makes a vertical line (slimming). The texture of this triangular-shaped shawl is soft. Very nice for wrapping one's shoulders in while reading. Thanks, Ms. Asto.

Plum shawl is squishy soft and cuddles round the shoulders. I like the workmanship and quality of yarn. Thank you. Donna, USA
Recently while I was strolling through a park, a woman from India gestured to my shawl, Plum Bouquet, and indicated she liked it, using smiles and hand gestures. I improvised gestures to indicate it had come from far away and that I loved to wear it. She lifted up the ingeniously designed border, fingering it appreciatively. Your artistry made this friendly encounter possible. Donna
Wow! I just received the alpaca Silver Night poncho/cape as a gift, and I LOVE it! It is so extremely soft, warm, and beautiful. I admire your knitting and designing talent. Our winters are long and cold, so this will get much use. Thank you.
I received my order of the red, ""Continents"", alpaca poncho. I wanted to say that, this is the most beautiful poncho I've ever seen. The workmanship and the color are both amazing. I would love to see Marianella Asto make more ponchos in the future in other colors; blues, browns and grays. Thank you so much for your beautiful work! Amy M.
Okay. I had been eyeballing this shawl for months. When it finally became available and I had the money to scoop this little gem up, I didn't hesitate. I just received my 'Romantic' shawl in the mail and it. is. gorgeous. The quality is outstanding and the shawl is soft, lightweight and so warm. I would recommend this product to anyone who, like me, enjoys wrapping themselves in a warm, fuzzy blanket and parading about because that's exactly what this shawl feels like. I will very likely be purchasing more like this one in the future for family and friends. Thanks so much Marianella!
