"I try to transmit life and joy with each design. It's exciting to see the finished pieces being worn by someone. This fills me with satisfaction."
"Hola. I'm Ani Muñiz and I was born in Lima. From the time I was a child I enjoyed handicrafts. My sister Beatriz Muñiz – also a Novica-featured artisan – was and is my greatest source of inspiration.
"I'd watch her creating her designs and I loved it. I'd try to innovate with my own hands and that's how I came to discover inside me what I wanted.

"I try to transmit life and joy with each design. It's exciting to see the finished pieces being worn by someone. This fills me with satisfaction. I can't explain it in words… the feeling makes me able to always create something even better.

"I hope each one of my designs gives you as much joy as they all give me."
