Meet the Artist

Marleny Quijahuaman

"I mix different threads and yarns, and combine them with embroidery, for example. I really enjoy this — it's definitely my passion and I want to do this forever."

"I'm Teresa Marleny Quijahuaman Yana. I was born in 1969 in the beautiful city of Arequipa with its extraordinary... colonial architecture that mixes European characteristics with ancient Peruvian art.

I'm an enterprising woman, constant and responsible. When I was a girl, I'd accompany my mother to her knitting classes, and this marked my life. That's when I discovered my own affinity for this lovely art.

"I was still quite young when I began working. I created children's clothing in small quantities. For this, I used fine yarn from the summer season.

"With perseverance, effort and dedication, my orders began to increase. People asked me for new designs every two weeks and I began adapting my work to the seasons.

"It isn't easy to keep up with the seasonal trends. It's been a challenge to achieve this but it's been worth it. I feel very proud because, when you really want to reach your goals, you can't rest until you do. Even now, I continue striving each day to create quality apparel to distinguish my work from all the rest.

"I firmly believe in the importance of constant innovation. This is what will make you stand out; if not, you'll be left by the wayside, unable to move forward and reach your goals. I also believe that innovation goes hand in hand with personal preparation and training.

"My fascination with textile art arose from its versatility, breadth, and the variety of techniques and materials. They challenge me but encourage me to develop my creativity. I experiment by hand with knitting needles and crochet hooks, and sometimes with a home knitting machine. I mix different threads and yarns, and combine them with embroidery, for example. I really enjoy this — it's definitely my passion and I want to do this forever.

"I usually work in 100% alpaca and baby alpaca, the soft, fine fleece from the season's first shearing.

"My inspiration comes from the beauty and fragility in the natural world that surrounds me. In this place where I grew up and have lived and experienced so much in my life.

"I also find inspiration in the highland communities where I give classes so the artisans there can increase the value of their textile work. At the same time, I learn techniques from them, techniques that are dying out.

"For the future, I hope to keep this workshop that is growing day by day with dedication and work. With the help of my family and children, I believe this will be possible. We do everything with passion and I really enjoy my work. My children are behind me in this. I also want to continue teaching others in small communities so that they can improve their art and also their quality of life."

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.

By skipping steps in the traditional supply chain, you can buy high quality items for less than the regular retail prices.
