"Love this cardigan"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Warm, well designed and such lovely softness in the yarn. A tiny bit of care needed to avoid pulls, but I would not change a thing, it is so cosy and ready for any occasion whether casual or more formal. Thank you Pia!

Profound Impact

Profound Impact

Pia's struggles with her health have forced her to downsize her workshop but she is determined to keep it open. Her workers rely on their earnings to care for themselves and their families. Nearly half of the workshop's income is derived from Novica sales and Pia does not want to let let her helpers down.

Job Creator

Job Creator

Pia has taken a very modern approach to textile production. Her workers live far from her workshop and used to spend hours each day traveling to work. Pia moved her knitting machines to her artisans' homes and they no longer have to travel great distances. They are able to spend more time with their families and still earn a living. Pia works with machine knitters and hand finishers to create her knitwear collection.

Working with Disabilities

Working with Disabilities

Pia struggles daily with fibromyalgia. Marcelino, her assistant, of 32 years, suffered a stroke in 2016. He continues with his knitting at the workshop but struggles with work that once came easily. However, they have worked together since the very beginning and find joy in their success and strength in each other as they face their health challenges.

Moving On Up

Moving On Up

Pia's innovative approach to production has enabled her to work with artisans who once needed to travel a great distance to the workshop. In spite of her own health difficulties, she has kept her workshop open in order to provide a steady income for her collaborators.

Pia has been included in a local magazine story about her participation in an event to benefit profoundly deaf children.
