A classic and beautiful design, this elegant poncho is presented by artisan Alfredo Falcon of Peru. Indigo in color, the soft and warm garment is knit from 100% alpaca wool.
Alfredo's sales have increased more than three times since starting with Novica. He started with only a few assistants and now can offer work to his helpers and several other women who help fill his orders part-time. Many of the women who work for him are now able to provide essentials for their homes like mattresses, refrigerators, and other appliances.
Over twenty years ago, Alfredo was infected with tuberculosis at just 22 years of age. For nine months, he was bedridden and unable to work. Tuberculosis is a deadly disease with more than 5,000 people per day passing away from the disease. Alfredo survived and was able to become healthy again.
Alfredo currently provides full-time jobs to a single mother, a man trying to fund his education, and several women who are bringing income to their households.
Alfredo currently supports English studies for his four nephews, with the hope that it will help them achieve a better future.
Alfredo was recognized by the city hall for his excellent work.
I bought this some time go but only just received it because it was delivered to our U.S. home. I am Canadian. I did not exect this poncho to be such a beautilful garment. It is soft, spongy and feels just georgeous. There are no seams at all and although it is wool is is still feels light, no heaviness at all. The colour is a very soft blend. This might just be my best purchase in a very long time. I have been looking for an affordale poncho with some elegance for years and I still don't know how I came accross this item but it may be your best poncho as well. You will never ever be disappointed in the workmanship and quality of this garment. It is a lovely piece you can dress up or down. I am simply delighted.
