Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

The San Pedro de Cajas wooden handloom bears the name of the Andean town that for generations has used it to create beautiful weavings. Nearly everyone in the town knows how to weave. San Pedro de Cajas is also Raul Ulloa's hometown. Growing-up there, he learned to weave from his father. Raul treasures his artistic legacy - today in his workshop he uses this same loom and traditional techniques to create contemporary tapestries and accessories that honor the legacy of Peruvian woven cultural treasures.

At the turn of this century when Raul began to work with Novica, he lived and worked in a tiny rented house - fearful that he would be unable to support his wife and newborn child. Today, his Novica sales support his family. He has been able to acquire additional looms, grow his workshop and experience the joy of sending his two children to school.

Raul Ulloa Baylon has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $800 and the most recent for $1400. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of alpaca and sheep wool, his principal materials for production.

Providing his children with the best education possible is Raul's goal. Sending his two children to school brings him joy.

Raul once feared he would be unable to provide for his first child. Today he is able to support his two children.

"A vibrant topic of conversation"

I bought this a few years ago and have never regretted the investment. The colors and design are fabulous. It fits my eclectic global decor. Whenever I have new people over they ask about it. I had a little trouble figuring out a way to hang it, but ended up buying two copper toned curtain rods with a simple decorative terminal. I attached the brackets to the wall and hung the tapestry from one rod. It has to be fully extended for the width of the tapestry. The second rod I inserted into the bottom tube for weight.

"This is an interesting tapestry, well done"

when seeing it on the screen, I loved it more than when I saw it on arrival. May be my benchmark was higher than this piece. I saw one tapestry in the Lima Airport that captured my imagination, so I decided to buy something from Novica. It is a well crafted piece that can adorn your living space, but it is not the art I had in mind.

"Totally in love with Chan Chan"

The colours are rich, vibrant, saturated. The image dances. the picture shown here does not do justice to the stunning effect of the tapestry. In addition to the intense colours in the yarns, Raul has succeeded in shading some areas. The craftsmanship is amazing.

Thank you for the lovely ""Spring Night"" shoulder bag. It is even prettier than in the picture. The design is beautiful, the colors vibrant, and the workmanship is exquisite. Best of all, the straps are just the right length for me to wear it cross-body when I travel. Great work.
