Celinda uses traditional materials to create her contemporary clothing. Her designs are often based on Andean styles such as ponchos and ruanas, her garments are machine knit and finished by hand. From her early teens, Celinda was obsessed with textiles and began to learn tailoring, knitting, crochet, toy-making and appliqué. Many of these crafts were taught to her by her family. Today, she enjoys passing her skills on to the next generation. She encourages university students who are curious about the textile arts to visit her workshop and "practice."

Celinda has a natural entrepreneurial spirit. She attempted many things before finding her own workshop. Dedicated to preserving Peruvian textile traditions, she trains her own workers and informally teaches university students who have an open invitation to visit her workshop and learn about the textile arts. She is an asset to her community.

Celinda, her husband and her grandson are all supported through her Novica sales. These sales are steady, enabling her to pay her employees, her workshop bills and other living expenses.

Celinda hires as many university students as possible. It is her way of ensuring that someone will not have to give up their studies because they cannot afford to continue.

She has received an award for quality and design from Promperu, the Peruvian export and tourism agency.

Celinda is proud to be able to pay for the education of one of her grandsons.

"My Forever coat"

I've been looking for a classy black jacket for quite a few years. This hooded cape is meticulously made and fits the bill perfectly. Just got it and hoping against hope it won't pill over the years. Will leave another review if it does. It's elegant and looks a lot more expensive than it was.

"Exactly what I was looking for!"

It's so versatile, warm and comfy. You can wear as much under it as you want and still have the carefree poncho look. And it has pockets!

"My new favorite thing!"

The style and elegance of this wrap/coat with hood for protection from the horrible winds we get here in the high desert. Perfect for the occasions you want a dressier look but also works with jeans. There is no end to the way you can use this gorgeous design, and did I mention the wonderful softness of the fabric!

beautiful work

Barbara

I bought Celinda's misty grey alpaca cloak with white embroidery as a birthday gift to myself. My, what great taste I have! Celinda's designs are exquisite, and the workmanship is excellent. The cape is very soft and warm, yet light weight. I am receiving many compliments and definitely will order more of her artistry. What a pleasure to wear!
