"Beautiful"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is lovely and has such a welcoming, lush scene on the front. I use it sometimes for my cell phone when I dont have a shirt with a pocket, or sometimes I use it to hold my pair of very close up eyeglasses. Shows meticulous handiwork.

"What a treat!"

The parrots and big cat are my favorite things about this! You can hang it up as a tiny art piece or use for pencils. But it is much too nice for that! Lovely craftsmanship on this. Thank you

"Beautiful Arpillera Wall Hanging"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

When I visited Peru as a student I was enchanted by the arpillera tapestries. I bought several but ended up giving them all away so I was pleased to find this beautiful arpillera wall hanging at Novica. I love this colorful and peaceful scene and the attention to detail. María Ramos Sánchez does beautiful work and I hope she will make more arpillera wall hangings.

"Perfect for phone and cash"

Love it and got a lot of compliments. Only issues were that it pills easily over time and the metallic thread in the strap breaks off and comes out.

This is a very beautifully crafted bag with a lot of detail. It is just the right size for a cell phone or to carry a few odds and ends. Everyone who sees it remarks on how colorful it is.
