This Peruvian-crafted poncho from artisan Alfredo Falcon combines traditional textile work and modern design. The poncho features a V-neck and a flattering drape. Rich burgundy is accented with a wide camel border at the neckline and a bold stripe across the poncho's front and back.
Alfredo's sales have increased more than three times since starting with Novica. He started with only a few assistants and now can offer work to his helpers and several other women who help fill his orders part-time. Many of the women who work for him are now able to provide essentials for their homes like mattresses, refrigerators, and other appliances.
Over twenty years ago, Alfredo was infected with tuberculosis at just 22 years of age. For nine months, he was bedridden and unable to work. Tuberculosis is a deadly disease with more than 5,000 people per day passing away from the disease. Alfredo survived and was able to become healthy again.
Alfredo currently provides full-time jobs to a single mother, a man trying to fund his education, and several women who are bringing income to their households.
Alfredo currently supports English studies for his four nephews, with the hope that it will help them achieve a better future.
Alfredo was recognized by the city hall for his excellent work.
Just received this beautiful poncho and it is perfect for the cool temps in Florida. It's light-weight, but can tell that it will keep me warm with the bulk of a coat or jacket. Extreme high-quality and very stylish -- this will become a favorite staple for the fall.
