"Stunning Poncho, Compliments Galore"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a spectacular poncho! The colors are amazing, and its extremely well-crafted, soft, and lightweight! Not really a winter poncho for where I live, Central Ohio— Better suited to a chilly but dry spring or autumn day. I love the postcard, which will also be a keepsake. Also, it arrived well ahead of schedule! For fit purposes: I am 5 3”, US size 10, approximately 30” waist, US 36DD chest, and this poncho fits perfectly!

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

Raquel and Gregor are dedicated to preserving the traditions woven into Peruvian culture from pre-Incan times. Like many before them, they learned their textile craft from elders in the community and they pass their knowledge to the younger artisans who work with them. Each piece produced in their workshop is woven on a wooden floor loom and finished by hand. Created from natural fibers — alpaca, cotton and silk — their work echoes the natural colors of the Peruvian landscape, reverberating with the rich hues of the mountains, the jungle and the coast.

Moving On Up

Moving On Up

Raquel and Gregor are deeply committed to building a sustainable workshop that offers a flexible supportive environment for the people who collaborate with them, most of whom are women. They have a special room at the workshop for the women to breastfeed or otherwise care for their children. Many of these women work solely for the purpose of being able to educate their children. Raquel and Gregor also have a deep respect for the environment and have installed solar panels in their workshop, a rarity in Peru.

Working with Disabilities

Working with Disabilities

Among the quality control assistants at Raquel and Gregor's workshop is one who is profoundly deaf. The rest of the team takes great pride in the way they have learned to communicate with her. They treasure what she has taught them about communicating with her and with each other.

Microcredit Financing

Microcredit Financing

Raquel and Gregor has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1400 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to buy more silk, cotton and alpaca wool for her shawls and accessories.
