Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Nestor is not only an employer, he is an important member of his community. He continues to grow his business providing full-time employment to 23 workers 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'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 employees. He finds his inspiration in traditional Peruvian art and constantly searches art and history books to refine his craft.

Nestor loves his community and does what he can to help it. He employs 15 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 is often brought about by repetitive motion. Nestor 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 business and now employs 23 workers.

Nestor pays for his son to attend the university and employees other artisans that pay for their own children's education.

Nestor still provides for his son that is at the university.

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
