"A TRUE Alpaca masterpiece !!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Just marvelous. Ive 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.

"Beautiful Piece of Art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Its very soft and foldable. Has weight into it and does not cause any skin itching like some wools do. Has vibrant colors and it feels pretty warm if used as blanket. Its a handmade and authentic product that is presented by its original maker. Were really happy with the purchase. Thank you

This 100 % alpaca blanket is even lovelier than I had hoped. The colours, texture and the thickness of this generous sized blanket is perfect. Thank you Raul Ulloa Babylon.

"Stunning"

Where to begin! I am in love with this. The colors, the quality, the energy. I have it in my studio where i do energy work that includes a lot of sound energy. It hangs amongst some clear crystal tools and just makes the space pop. So very pleased.

The colours are rich, vibrant, saturated. The image dances. the picture shown here does not do justice to the stunning effect of the tapestry. In addition to the intense colours in the yarns, Raul has succeeded in shading some areas. The craftsmanship is amazing.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

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.

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.

Raul Ulloa Baylon has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $800 and the most recent for $1400. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of alpaca and sheep wool, his principal materials for production.

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.
