Details

From the talented Maldonado Family comes this colorful acrylic and alpaca blend tapestry. Depicting a proud peacock taking its place front and center, the wall hanging is festooned with various geometric shapes in brilliant shades of red, yellow, green, black, brown, white and deep purple. Carefully selected dyes tint the hand-loomed yarn, while the remainder of the tapestry is finished by hand, complete with a hem at top to insert a display rod (not included). The fringed bottom adds a touch of panache, making it a standout accent for any home or office.

"great alpaca poncho"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the second poncho I have bought but the first 100% alpaca. I like hooded sweatshirts and this fit the bill perfectly. it is heavier than the blended poncho I previously bought and feels warmer. I am very pleased with the craftsmanship, quality and price. But the real surprise I got was how it was packaged, like a gift, with a postcard, signed, and a red ribbon with a little figure out of yarn attached! it made my day. it brought back the days when you could buy such products from small shops and not the big box stores. It felt very personnel and meaningful. best regards to Novica and all the Peruvian craftsmen!

"A New Me"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I live in North Texas where the winters are usually pretty mild. With temps in the 40s and clear, I had a need to walk downtown to see the latest Star Wars flick. Wore this baby for the first time. It was great. I felt a little self-conscious but it sure felt good. Had my own little blanket in the cold theatre. Loved it. It feels great, looks great on me, and is well constructed,. I expect to get many years of use from this wonderful garment.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

The Maldonado's hometown, Hualhuas, is a renowned textile center. It is there that Faustino and his wife learned to weave from their parents, who learned from their parents before them. The Maldonado family motto defines what it means to be a Keeper of the Arts — "I will never let go of either my grandfather or grandson's hands, for what I have learned from the elders, I will teach to the young."

Faustino truly understands the meaning of community. He feels a great responsibility for his assistants. He knows that, without their wages, his workers would be unable to care for their families. Novica sales have brought stability to the Maldonado Family workshop. they are no longer dependent upon tourism and can now meet their monthly expenses.

The steady income that Novica sales bring have enabled the Maldonado Family to expand their workshop. They are now one of the largest workshops in Hualhuas and this has led to an increase in the income they receive from tourism. In addition to their two full-time employees they are able to give seasonal work to other artisans.

Faustino Maldonado began working as a boy with his parents and grandparents. Today, his family workshop has grown and he has greatly expanded his design collection. As a result, he is able to provide work to neighbors who are weavers.

Maldonado Family has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2300 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to purchase alpaca wool and sheep wool for his weavings.

The family elder, Faustino struggles to manage his diabetes. He follows a special diet and undergoes ongoing treatment. However he brings his weaving expertise to the family workshop he founded as a young man.

Faustino and the Maldonado Family workshop have been featured in many publications, among them El Comercio in which Faustino was shown alongside former Peruvian President, Fernando Belaunde.

During times of high demand for his weavings, Faustino hires temporary workers. He has employed several blind artisans who excel at hand spinning.

Faustino helps his son and daughter pay for the education of their children.
