Details

A vision of elegance and cozy warmth, this cloak is imbued with Peruvian chic. Nestor Yana designs this piece based upon the traditional cloak of the Andean highlands. The cloak features a delicate floral border crocheted by hand. A matching scarf is sewn to the cloak, which fastens with four ornate buttons.

Yana also calls this cloak hallpa, which in the Quechua language refers to the distinct earth tones in this piece.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Nestor's mother is from Juliaca in the Peruvian altiplano. She taught Nestor to weave and he in turn has taught his wife, his two children and his assistants. He finds his inspiration in traditional Peruvian art and constantly searches art and history books to refine his craft.

Nestor is not only an employer, he is an important member of his community. He continues to grow his workshop, providing full-time employment to many people and part-time employment to others when he can. He recognizes his good fortune and shares with those less fortunate whenever the opportunity arises. The income from Nestor's Novica sales not only supports his wife, son and elderly parents - it helps to support others in his community. Many of Nestor's employees were homeless. Nestor not only provides them with work, he provides a place to stay or live.

Nestor loves his community and does what he can to help it. He employs disabled elderly craftswomen to create the unique hand finishes applied to his designs. These women would be unable to care for themselves without the support Nestor gives them.

Nestor was recently diagnosed with a calcaneal bone spur, a condition that is often brought about by repetitive motion. He has been forced to modify his daily routine at the workshop.

Nestor's persistence and determination have paid off. He not only is able to support himself but has grown his workshop and now offers work to others.

Nestor pays for his son to attend the university and employs other artisans who pay for their own children's education.

Nestor still provides for his son who is in the university.

"Alpaca Wool Poncho "Warm Earth""

Although I am short (5') and this poncho is very long on me; I love it! It will be worn for evening wear. A very nice soft tan colour with crochet fringe and edging on the scarf and body.

"A Very Stylish Alternative to a Winter Coat"

Although this may sound like the typical comment, this wrap truly is more beautiful than the photo depicts. The color is exactly as I hoped, very slightly darker than a camel and, though a neutral, it is by no means dull, muddied, or 'grayed-out'. The quality is excellent, as I would expect from a Novica artisan, and the attention to detail is evident in all areas of the garment's construction. Ah, the style....it is truly stunning and very elegant. Although labeled a 'poncho', it is much more stylish than that name implies. When worn, it never fails to attract attention and multiple compliments. I find myself wishing our mild winters had a few more cold days as this wrap is also warm and cozy. If you want a beautiful alternative to the standard winter coat, and you like being a step above the commonplace, this lovely wrap should be the perfect piece to add to your cold weather wardrobe. Thank you Mr. Yana for a lovely, quality product.

I received my sweater today. The braided cocoa. It is lovely, and made with pride. I know I will be wearing it many many times. Thank you so much for quality clothes. I will be watching your page for more clothes. God Bless

I love this Alpaca blend sweater. the color change at the collar and sleeves helps it be dress or casual with many different outfits.

When ordering sweaters, especially handmade sweaters, online, I'm always concerned whether they fill fit right. The Alpaca blend men's sweater 'Blue Mountains' fits perfectly, it is very soft for a wool sweater, and the colors and design are just beautiful. Thank you! A. Kuhn
