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.

"Love it"

I've bought two ponchos from Nestor Yana and wouldn't hesitate to buy another. The quality is superb--this is a beautiful lightweight knit with a lovely design. The wool is soft and comfortable. I can just throw it on and it feels so cozy and warm on cloudy days, but when the sun comes out it feels breezy and I don't get too hot. I wear it at home on cool mornings like a blanket. It matches everything. I love it!

"The presentation and poncho are unique and lovely "

I feel beautiful in my poncho! It's light enough for summer days in Florida and so soft I wish I had a blanket made out of the wonderful material. I love it and am so glad I own it!

"well made! "

The fabric of this poncho is wonderful, it looks and feels like someone put a lot of time and love into making it. It's the perfect weight to be drape nicely and not at all bulky.

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
