"Lovely Work of Art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I recently had shoulder surgery and with Wisconsin winter approaching, I was desperate to find a warm cape that could be worn over a large sling. Traditional coats were out of the question. I purchased this lovely cape and could not be more pleased. Its cozy warm, and with layering, will be perfect except during the coldest time of winter. The detailing is just beautiful, the color is a rich red and the drape of the fabric is perfect. I know Ill wear this for many years to come even after the shoulder is healed! Simply beautiful and yet very functional.

I love the way this fits. I will be sharing it with my niece for special occasions. It is warm without too much weight. The lovely crimson color and the detailing on it make it wearable with jeans or a nice dress. The attached scarf keeps the neck warm. The artist did a lovely job. Thank you for a garment beautifully made garment.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Celinda uses traditional materials to create her contemporary clothing. Her designs are often based on Andean styles such as ponchos and ruanas, her garments are machine knit and finished by hand. From her early teens, Celinda was obsessed with textiles and began to learn tailoring, knitting, crochet, toy-making and appliqué. Many of these crafts were taught to her by her family. Today, she enjoys passing her skills on to the next generation. She encourages university students who are curious about the textile arts to visit her workshop and "practice."

Celinda has a natural entrepreneurial spirit. She attempted many things before finding her own workshop. Dedicated to preserving Peruvian textile traditions, she trains her own workers and informally teaches university students who have an open invitation to visit her workshop and learn about the textile arts. She is an asset to her community.

Celinda, her husband and her grandson are all supported through her Novica sales. These sales are steady, enabling her to pay her employees, her workshop bills and other living expenses.

Celinda hires as many university students as possible. It is her way of ensuring that someone will not have to give up their studies because they cannot afford to continue.

She has received an award for quality and design from Promperu, the Peruvian export and tourism agency.

Celinda is proud to be able to pay for the education of one of her grandsons.

This artist supports children under the age of 18.
