    Story Behind the Art:

    During the 1970s, Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. He found work as a janitor in a textile factory. 'I was completely fascinated with the work they were doing,' Isidoro recalls. 'I became enamored with the textile arts at first sight. At night, when everyone had gone home, I began to look at the looms and to experiment with them. Some days later, one of the weavers complained his machine was never the way he'd left it the night before. The owner asked who kept adjusting the loom, and was surprised to learn the culprit was me! When she asked why I was using the loom, I replied that I wanted to learn. She said if I really wanted to learn, I should learn to assemble one of the spare looms in the warehouse. That was one of the most important moments in my life. It was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed to my children.'

  • Beautiful

    It is an exceptionally beautiful blanket, much longer than most throws, soft wool and light-weight but very warm. Perfect for "couch-potato" evenings.

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • Good looking and warm

    This Novica throw is the perfect blanket for cold evenings while reading or watching TV. I love the color and light-weight feel of it.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Soft because of blend of acrylic and alpaca
    • How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate sizing
    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
  • not worth the price

    A nice enough looking "blanket" but it's VERY thin. More like a woolen sheet than a blanket. Not worth the money by any stetch. If it was a third of the price I would call it a reasonable deal.

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? No
  • Gorgeous

    This throw exceeded my expectations. The weave is beautiful, it has a lovely binding, colors are subtle, design is very handsome. I am very pleased with this purchase.

    • Would you recommend this to a friend? Yes
