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.

Absolutely fabulous workmanship! Celinda's detail and care in creating this cape are well shown. The alpaca wool was very soft and looked very flattering.

"great for working and shopping as well"

This cape is easy to wear and fits beautifully. I wore it over my jacket when it started getting cold and it warmed my shoulders enough that i did not have to wear a coat yet. A very beautiful lipstick red and the lacy work around the edge makes it special and feminine looking. I love wearing red and wore this over my shoulders as I was working on my desk and it was light enough and warm enough. it fits really well without slipping down and is thin enough to be worn year around in most climates although it is wool. Very lovely piece.

"Just in time!"

The beautiful cape was lying at my doorstep, along with the morning papers today. And what wonderful timing! It's snowing in New York so I will get to wear the Andean Snow Princess cape in an hour or so. Can't wait. Kudos to Celinda Jaco.

"Great color!"

Vibrant red just like the photo! And the crochet around the edges is lovely. I gave this item 4 stars because I was a little disappointed with the slightly coarse weave of the fabric. I ordered this as a gift, and the recipient was pleased and has worn it several times.

beautiful work

I bought Celinda's misty grey alpaca cloak with white embroidery as a birthday gift to myself. My, what great taste I have! Celinda's designs are exquisite, and the workmanship is excellent. The cape is very soft and warm, yet light weight. I am receiving many compliments and definitely will order more of her artistry. What a pleasure to wear!
