"Very nice, but..."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Not positive I will keep this. Looks great from the front--and I love the horn clasp. Hard to describe, but the problem is where the two pieces meet: where that seem is, the stretch of the fabric pulls the seam up so that youve got one side shorter than the other. A better way to say it: looking at it from the back with the point at the bottom, one side will fall past your elbow, but the other side wont. This wouldnt happen if the fabric were flat without the accordion kind of stretch to it. HOWEVER, if you wear it off-center so that the seam runs along your arm and you put the clasp up by your opposite shoulder, it looks pretty cool. Even if I return, I wish I could keep that clasp--very useful--even just the pin part of it.

"This sweater is my all time favorite!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I just gave this sweater to my mom for Christmas. In her words: The design is inspired and the detail exquisite; the workmanship is perfection; the feel is pure comfort and ease. Pia Zavala is indeed an artist in the finest sense - someone to follow. This sweater instantly became my all time favorite! (and she is a very discerning person when it comes to clothing!)

"Alpaca blend cardigan"

Very nice pattern. Sleeve length perfect (most unusual for me). I would have like more fullness on the back where the sleeves join.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Pia's struggles with her health have forced her to downsize her workshop but she is determined to keep it open. Her workers rely on their earnings to care for themselves and their families. Nearly half of the workshop's income is derived from Novica sales and Pia does not want to let let her helpers down.

Pia has taken a very modern approach to textile production. Her workers live far from her workshop and used to spend hours each day traveling to work. Pia moved her knitting machines to her artisans' homes and they no longer have to travel great distances. They are able to spend more time with their families and still earn a living. Pia works with machine knitters and hand finishers to create her knitwear collection.

Pia struggles daily with fibromyalgia. Marcelino, her assistant, of 32 years, suffered a stroke in 2016. He continues with his knitting at the workshop but struggles with work that once came easily. However, they have worked together since the very beginning and find joy in their success and strength in each other as they face their health challenges.

Pia's innovative approach to production has enabled her to work with artisans who once needed to travel a great distance to the workshop. In spite of her own health difficulties, she has kept her workshop open in order to provide a steady income for her collaborators.

Pia has been included in a local magazine story about her participation in an event to benefit profoundly deaf children.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Pia's children are grown but she provides for the education of a grandchild.
