"My go-to wardrobe staple"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this poncho along with "Grey Earth Cracks" from Nestor Yana and absolutely love them both. I was so excited when they arrived, beautifully packaged and beribboned. I LOVE the copper colour of this one--my hair is gold-brown and it suits me perfectly. The quality of the knit is superb--it's obviously made with care and attention to detail. I was concerned that alpaca wool might be itchy but it's not--it's super soft and cozy warm while still lightweight. People admire it wherever I go, and I am so proud to wear something unique and of such high craftsmanship. I love it. Thank you, Nestor Yana!

"Heirloom Quality and So Soft"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This piece is now a standard weekly item for my Autumn wardrobe. The quality is exceptional, and the weight is light enough for daily wear in mild climates but warm enough to transition to winter.

"Lovely sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sweater is very, very pretty and very well made. It is see through and one has to wear a shell or blouse underneath but I feel it adds to the beauty of the sweater. It is light weight and not heavy. I really like it. I feel Mr. Yanas workmanship is beautiful. Thank you.

"So light, but so warm"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

You do need to wear a camisole under the sweater, but despite the airy design, it is warm. It is also very soft and comfortable to wear. Easy to dress up or down and the color goes with many things. Very pleased with my purchase.

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 employees. 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 business providing full-time employment to 23 workers 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 is often brought about by repetitive motion. He has been forced to modify his daily routine, however he continues to design and craft fine alpaca apparel in his workshop.

Nestor Yana has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2850 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to buy yarn in the colors of this season's fashion trends for production.

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.
