"Navy Tunic"

Thank you Mr. Yana. Your work is so beautiful. I received this knitted tunic today and it is so very well made and the color is a gorgeous navy. I plan to save it for Christmas to give as a gift and I am very sure it will be very well liked.

"A gift for my daughter"

I bought this for my daughter as we approached winter and she was pregnant. This poncho helped keep her warm and fashionable through the winter session. AND she will wear it again next Fall when she is not longer pregnant!

"Lovely sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sweater is very, very pretty and very well made. It is see through and one has to wear a shell or blouse underneath but I feel it adds to the beauty of the sweater. It is light weight and not heavy. I really like it. I feel Mr. Yanas workmanship is beautiful. Thank you.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Nestor's mother is from Juliaca in the Peruvian altiplano. She taught Nestor to weave and he, in turn, has taught his wife, his two children and his employees. He finds his inspiration in traditional Peruvian art and constantly searches art and history books to refine his craft.

Nestor is not only an employer, he is an important member of his community. He continues to grow his business providing full-time employment to 23 workers and part-time employment to others when he can. He recognizes his good fortune and shares with those less fortunate whenever the opportunity arises. The income from Nestor's Novica sales not only supports his wife, son and elderly parents — it helps to support others in his community. Many of Nestor's employees were homeless. Nestor not only provides them with work, he provides a place to stay or live.

Nestor loves his community and does what he can to help it. He employs disabled elderly craftswomen to create the unique hand finishes applied to his designs. These women would be unable to care for themselves without the support Nestor gives them.

Nestor was recently diagnosed with a calcaneal bone spur, a condition is often brought about by repetitive motion. He has been forced to modify his daily routine, however he continues to design and craft fine alpaca apparel in his workshop.

Nestor Yana has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2850 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to buy yarn in the colors of this season's fashion trends for production.

Nestor's persistence and determination have paid off. He not only is able to support himself but has grown his workshop and now offers work to others.

Nestor pays for his son to attend the university and employs other artisans who pay for their own children's education.

Nestor still provides for his son who is in the university.
