Alfredo's story

Alfredo is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in alpaca textiles. He needs to stock up on the alpaca wool he uses in his apparel and accessories.

Alfredo has been selling through NOVICA since 2001. This is his story:

"When I was but a small child I learned from my parents the best weaving techniques. Like me, they had learned from their own parents. This makes us a family entirely devoted to the world of textiles, and we have been for generations. Nowadays I combine knitting techniques, remaining true to Inca and colonial motifs."

"I want to express my greatest gratitude to all of you who are helping to fund this microcredit. Thank you so much for your faith in us. I send a warm, fraternal embrace to each and every one of you."
