Felipe's story

Felipe is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in alpaca shawls and scarves. He would like to invest in the purchase of alpaca yarn to increase production.

Felipe has been selling through NOVICA since 2012. This is his story:

"Ever since I can remember, I've been interested in all things textile. I formally stepped into the world of natural fibers in 1998, first with cotton knits and then alpaca wool. And just like with every new beginning, mine was very tough. To create something new and interesting, I look to my beloved Peru for inspiration, our cultural diversity, colors, and customs.

"Please receive my thanks and a hug for contributing to this microcredit. Be assured you will always receive a high-quality accessory that is made with love for this art while thinking of the person who will wear it."
