Barbara Villegas

"I love to knit and it's inspiring to see how you can make a complete piece of apparel with only yarn and a pair of knitting needles!"

"I was born in the province of Ica, one of the warmest in Peru. I consider myself a strong woman, humanitarian... hardworking and respectful.

"Life hasn't been easy for me, in fact, I had to face many tough times. Once we found ourselves in a very complicated financial situation. I didn't have steady work and had to leave my young son with my mother so I could go out and look for a job that would pay the bills. I thank God we were able to get through this and have the strength to continue working and striving for our dreams.

"I have a lot of hope for a promising future. I believe that commitment and effort bring results. To reach my goals, I believe I must give it my all. That's the only way of achieving success. I want to share my accomplishments with my beautiful family and my son. I hope we can all grow together in the textile arts. In my mind, I can see all the things we could do if we work together.

"All my life, I watched my mother knit, crochet and sew, and I became familiar with the entire process. I'd come home from school and want to design apparel and accessories. I always loved the details, the colors, the vivid tones when they came alive in clothing that I could wear everywhere. I wanted to make my own accessories and, for that, I had to learn to knit. But I worked hard to balance school with my personal life to be able to do the things that make me happy.

"When you work with so much enthusiasm, it shows. It happened with me. I love to preserve our ancestral and traditional techniques as they were used in olden Peru. Our different cultures used different manual methods and I love them. I really enjoy using them because simply thinking of someone wearing my designs fills me with happiness. My work is attractive as well as comfortable.

"I had to practice, practice and practice some more to master my art. I had to work as well as take care of my son while dividing myself among a hundred different tasks. However, I feel very fortunate to be able to create my own designs, see my child grow, and have a beautiful family.

"Once I come up with a design, it can be challenging to find the right stitches but I love the challenge. I want my work to be both fun and elegant. I love to knit and it's inspiring to see how you can make a complete piece of apparel with only yarn and a pair of knitting needles! Human ability is amazing and I love this craft so much. It's also inspiring to see women wearing my designs."

FINDING YOUR SIZE

Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.

BUST / CHEST

Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.

WAIST

Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.

LOW WAIST

Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.

HIPS

Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.

NECK

Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.

SLEEVE

Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

INSEAM

Our standard inseam length for women is 32" and 34" for men; however inseam measurements will vary slightly by style.

 

Belts with buckles are measured in inches that correspond to a waist size however, most people do not wear belts on the waist, they wear them closer to the hips. A buckle belt measurement is take from the end of the "pin" of the buckle to the middle hole on the belt. Generally there are 5 holes for size adjustment, with a 1" space between each, so the middle hole will the be average size of the belt.

For at tie belt (no buckle) measure the belt portion end to end and half of the tie portion. This again is the medium size of the belt.

For a soft fabric tie belt it can be called "1 size fits most" and the entire length of the belt should be measured and listed.

UNICEF Market offers triple win pricing, where YOU the consumer, Children from around the world, and Artisans all benefit.

WIN # 1 You Save!

Handmade goods from developing nations usually pass through a series of intermediaries before being purchased by retail consumers. Each of these intermediaries adds cost to the product, and that cost is passed on to the customer. UNICEF USA partnered with NOVICA, who works directly with artists through their regional offices in Asia, Africa and Latin America, allowing purchases from UNICEF Market to go directly from the artisans to fulfilling customer orders. By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.

WIN # 2 Children Benefit!

Each item purchased from UNICEF Market will benefit UNICEF's programs that provide lifesaving nutrition, medicine, education, clean water, emergency relief and more to children in need.
