Raul's story

Raul is a Peruvian artisan who specializes in hand-woven tapestries. He would like to invest in the purchase of alpaca and sheep wool, his principal materials for production. Raul has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is his story: "After secondary school, I dedicated my energy to painting, finally cultivating the latent talent and skills of a self-taught artist. My father taught me to weave in the San Pedro de las Cajas style. I love to paint, and I love to weave. They are both forms of expression, and often after I explore a theme in my weavings, I will repeat them on the canvas. I sign my pieces after my second name, Angel." "Thank you all so much for this microcredit - it's a great incentive for us artisans to keep developing our craft."
