Nauman, Canada:
"Hello Carla, Just writing to say thank you for the beautiful Orlon bags. I have always loved the work of the wonderful artisans of Otavalo and for the last few years, I had been wondering how to get something from there, other than actually travelling there myself, which is tempting as I love the Otavalo artisan market. I was so happy to find your website because you bring Otavalo to the world. From the first email I sent you, I was impressed by your efficient service. Even though the time difference between you and me is almost 12 hours, you were prompt in replying to all my questions. Thank you for being so patient in answering my many questions. When I placed the order for the dozen Orlon bags, you sent me updates on the shipping process and within two weeks, the order was at my doorstep. I really appreciate the fact that you kept contact throughout that time and ensured that I had received my order. I have started to wear my new bags and I receive compliments on them all the time. I look forward to ordering more items from you. Thank you once again for providing the products of the Otavalo artisans, for your efficient service, and for your polite and affable manner. With Kind Wishes, Nauman."

Natalie , UK:
"Can't recommend Carveira Handicrafts highly enough. Having found the site online I initially emailed a query then ordered a tablecloth. I was a little hesitant because I was doing so from London, England and knew nothing about the company. I should not have feared. Carla was very responsive and helpful. A delight to communicate with in fact. The delivery was speedy and matched my needs exactly. The quality of the fabric supplied exceeded my expectations.
I was so pleased I ordered another that was equally lovely. Thanks - am now currently considering purchasing the inti bronze to add to my collection."

Denise, New Zealand:
"Fabulous products, beautiful colours, amazing designs- unbelievable that I can buy Ecuadorian crafts from local artisans from you here in Dunedin or online- always get positive comments about your jewellery & scarves & bags- unique items that feel like they are made with talent & love at such affordable prices - love all your products- great to trade with you always efficient, honest, reliable- amazing products to buy for gifts, even better to buy and love."

Alma, New Mexico - USA:
"I just wanted to take a moment to thank Carla for the beautiful tablecloths I purchased recently which are featured in these photographs. The closets in my new home in Taos, New Mexico were built without doors, presenting a rather unusual home decorating dilemma. When I ran across Carla's website, I knew I had a solution to the problem! I had many questions and had to find two that were alike for each door. Carla always answered my emails promptly and kept me well informed as to the progress of piecing together my rather large order,Her friendly and personable service made this a very pleasant shopping experience. The quality and workmanship of these tablecloths is remarkable.I will enjoy them for many years to come.I would recommend this company and its beautiful products to anyone.And by the way,don't miss her other fine products.
I bought a pair of alpaca socks which delighted a friend on her birthday. Thanks,Carla!!"

Maria Teresa, USA:

"I am very pleased with my baby alpaca blanket from Carviera Handicrafts. Carla was very helpful and responsive. I had no problems with the delivery or with the payment process. The blanket is perfect for me in Florida. It is light, very soft and warm. I like the simple and authentic design. Shipment cost is high compared to the cost of the blanket itself, but overall I consider it a better value and more unique than other options that I had considered."

Debbie, USA:
"I have been purchasing alpaca blankets from Carla Vieira for a few years now. My customers absolutely love the blankets. They have also been great to work with. Thank you."

Paula, USA:
"Im located in the US and was nervous about ordering a blanket from a shop on the other side of the world, but my buying experience couldn't have been better.  Carla, the owner, sent me numerous pictures of blankets that matched the colors I wanted and when I selected one, she had it in the mail within the hour.  It arrived within days and is gorgeous!  Buy with confidence."

Sona, Norway:
"I have to say that I am very impressed about how fast you have worked with the order and how easy it was to order something from so far away. Thanks."

Rachael, Aukland-New Zealand:
"Hi Carla. Thanks so much, blanket has arrived. Beautiful!!"

Nauman, Canada:
"This is the second time I placed an order with Carla at Carviera Handicrafts. I emailed Carla to check about a product from Ecuador that is not featured on her website. I just wanted to know whether it would be possible to get it. The product was the white shirts (for men) made of canvas fabric that have beautiful embroidery done by the Native artisans of Otavalo. Carla responded right away and said that she could certainly get those for me. She asked me details of the measurements I would need for the shirts and within two days of our first email exchange, Carla had gotten the shirts purchased. She sent me pictures of the shirts and told me that if I would like to make any changes, I could let her know. I was very happy with the shirts and I told her that she could go ahead with the shipping. She got them shipped the next day and within seven business days I had them at my door step in Canada. I truly appreciated that Carla went out of her way to get these shirts for me. It shows her excellent customer service skills and how much she cares for her customers. All the products she is selling on her website are truly unique and beautiful. They show the talent and skills of the Otavalo artisans and the best thing is that Carla has made it so convenient to get these products almost anywhere in the world. Whenever my heart misses Ecuador and I want to get something from there, I know that I can ask Carla and she will try her best to send it to me. In our world, where almost everything now is made in one country, it is so heartwarming that a person like Carla understands the need to bring original and unique handicrafts to our homes. Thank you Carla for all your hard work."
