"I will wear this a lot!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have several ruanas. This one is warmer than most wool-blend ruanas, and just a little heavier, The crochet work is all along the edges - hard to see in the photo, but they are crocheted flowers connected by two loose (not tacked down) strands of crochetwork. I am a little concerned that I might catch those on something, but I intend to be careful. I love this and will wear it often.

Perfect for chilly autumn and spring days in the UK. Very comfortable to wear and so subtly attractive.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

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."

Moving On Up
