Violeta Pacheco

"For me, being in my workshop is not a job; it is my passion. It is a part of my life that I love."

"My name is Violeta Pacheco. I was born in the city of Lima in 1971. I consider myself to be an independent, dreamy, and... optimistic woman who is very confident in every goal that I strive towards and in every step that I take.

"I am a very fortunate woman. I had a very happy and tranquil childhood with my family. My parents separated when I was 13 years old. Because of this, I stayed with my father, who was the most important figure in my life. He was a good man and a great friend. My father taught me to be independent and to always face problems and obstacles, despite the fact that we experienced times when we were very poor. He persevered in learning and motivated us as a family to strive, not only during the bad times, but also during the good ones.

"One of the most difficult moments in my life was the passing of my father. I was married with one daughter when he left this world. I thought I would not be able to get through it, since the bond I shared with my father was very strong. He suffered two bouts of cerebral thrombosis. One day, after celebrating his birthday, he fell into a coma and never woke. I believe that this was without a doubt the most painful thing that I have lived through, but I could rise above it because my father left me all of his strength, will, and perseverance in order to face all kinds of situations.

"My husband and I have been together for almost 25 years. When I was studying in the university, he became my life partner, my best friend, my confidant. He is a very grounded person. He listens to me, supports me, and is with me in every moment, encouraging each of my ideas and pushing me to achieve my goals. I believe that without his support, it would have been difficult carrying on with our life and professional projects.

#When I had my oldest daughter, I took a break and paused my projects. I could not in that moment dedicate myself to my work 100 percent, since I had to take care of my little girl. I found myself studying administration in the university without imagining that I would one day work in the textile arts.

"I was able to find work very close to textile production as an assistant of a known artisan. I began to see how the apparel and accessories were designed and created, and this is how everything began. Later, I went to a district in Lima to sell in a little shop. This is when my husband and I decided to open this space and I began learning to manage prices, designs, and suppliers.

"One day, I began to create textiles with my own knitting machines. I was able to acquire them with payday loans as well as a lot of effort and work. I also knew that I wanted to continue growing. We made the great leap to creating alpaca clothing when I received a special grant to work with this beautiful fiber, which inspired me to develop and grow my workshop.

"My plans, dreams, and hopes for the future are to be able to grow even more with my team, and that the designs that we develop will arrive not only at national markets, but international ones as well. And I hope to be recognized at the professional level. At the personal level, I hope to always have dreams and I continue to motivate my team.

"I am proud of the artisans who collaborate with me. They are the people most involved in the work. They are very attentive, strong, and imaginative, ready for anything. We have been through highs and lows, but we always knew we would get through them together. For me, being in my workshop is not a job; it is my passion. It is a part of my life that I love.

“What I like the most about my art is being able to express what inspires me the most. I found my path of independence and happiness in this work. My inspirations are always my family and my team. They are the ones who ensure that everything works and that I continue growing."

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.

Triple 'Win' Pricing

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.

You can learn more about UNICEF's work, on About UNICEF.

WIN # 3 Artisans Profit!

UNICEF Market artisans set their own prices and control their own businesses. UNICEF Market offers artisans a free platform to sell their work throughout the United States.
