Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

At the turn of this century when Raul began to work with Novica, he lived and worked in a tiny rented house - fearful that he would be unable to support his wife and newborn child. Today, his Novica sales support his family. He has been able to acquire additional looms, grow his workshop and experience the joy of sending his two children to school.

The San Pedro de Cajas wooden handloom bears the name of the Andean town that for generations has used it to create beautiful weavings. Nearly everyone in the town knows how to weave. San Pedro de Cajas is also Raul Ulloa's hometown. Growing-up there, he learned to weave from his father. Raul treasures his artistic legacy - today in his workshop he uses this same loom and traditional techniques to create contemporary tapestries and accessories that honor the legacy of Peruvian woven cultural treasures.

Providing his children with the best education possible is Raul's goal. Sending his two children to school brings him joy.

Raul once feared he would be unable to provide for his first child. Today he is able to support his two children.

"A TRUE Alpaca masterpiece !!"

The moment you lay your hands on this piece - you will know of it quality workmanship. The artistry of the bands make this an art piece in and of itself. I am proud to be the owner of one of Raul's hand-crafted blankets. It is nice and warm with a comforting weight to it. It will keep you and whomever you invite to share it with, nice and toasty without overheating. Thank You Raul for all your hard work and creativity!!

"Dream of the Andes 100% Alpaca throw"

Just marvelous. I've bought at least 3 woven wool satchel/bags from this artisan, and knew that any blanket he would make would have to be bought immediately. There are three bands of beautiful color on this (head, foot, and middle). Gorgous mid weight and so warm. Highly recommended.

Thank you for the lovely ""Spring Night"" shoulder bag. It is even prettier than in the picture. The design is beautiful, the colors vibrant, and the workmanship is exquisite. Best of all, the straps are just the right length for me to wear it cross-body when I travel. Great work.
