Raquel's story

Raquel, who works alongside her husband, Gregor, is an artisan who specializes in alpaca accessories. She would like to invest in a bulk purchase of yarn in various colors.

Raquel has been selling through NOVICA since 2006. This is her story:

Raquel and husband Gregor are dedicated to preserving Peruvian textile traditions. "What draws us to weaving is the opportunity to work with natural fibers by rescuing ancient Inca weaving techniques. We love to see the transformation of loose yarns into garments and accessories. We help an Andean community by employing weavers on traditional looms who then help us finish each piece by hand."

"As always, I am grateful to all of you for helping us to continue growing. With this loan, I will buy yarn in various colors to build up my inventory and create new designs."
