She is the mother of three and head of household. For Norelys is not easy to interact with strangers. She is very reserved and perhaps this has a strong relation with the excellent quality of her work. Quiet and very concentrated she remains while weaving.

Only until recently she began knitting learning from the women on her husbands side of the family. Candelaria Epiayú also called “Cande” has been her main teacher who says she is an outstanding student which is evident in the quality and firmness of her fabric.

During our first collection she had to mourn and could not knit as many Mochilas as she would have liked. Weaving is prohibited during the grieving process. Nevertheless, her first piece called after her got the best reviews from our customers.
