"A vibrant topic of conversation"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

"Stunning"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Where to begin! I am in love with this. The colors, the quality, the energy. I have it in my studio where i do energy work that includes a lot of sound energy. It hangs amongst some clear crystal tools and just makes the space pop. So very pleased.

"Totally in love with Chan Chan"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

"This is an interesting tapestry, well done"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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.

"Beautiful Piece of Art"

Its very soft and foldable. Has weight into it and does not cause any skin itching like some wools do. Has vibrant colors and it feels pretty warm if used as blanket. Its a handmade and authentic product that is presented by its original maker. Were really happy with the purchase. Thank you

This 100 % alpaca blanket is even lovelier than I had hoped. The colours, texture and the thickness of this generous sized blanket is perfect. Thank you Raul Ulloa Babylon.

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.
