I initially ordered this sweater for myself but liked it so much when it came decided to give it to my daughter in law for Christmas and order another for myself. When I got the second one, I decided to give it to my second daughter in law and order another for myself It drapes beautifully and is light but warm. It is perfect for around he house or for wearing out with either pants or skirts or even over dresses. I love it.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

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.

Moving On Up

Moving On Up

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.

Working with Disabilities

Working with Disabilities

Nestor loves his community and does what he can to help it. He employs 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.

Confronting Adversity

Confronting Adversity

Nestor was recently diagnosed with a calcaneal bone spur, a condition is often brought about by repetitive motion. He has been forced to modify his daily routine, however he continues to design and craft fine alpaca apparel in his workshop.

Microcredit Financing

Microcredit Financing

Nestor Yana has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2850 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to buy yarn in the colors of this season's fashion trends for production.

Job Creator

Job Creator

Nestor's persistence and determination have paid off. He not only is able to support himself but has grown his workshop and now offers work to others.

Enabling Education

Enabling Education
