Artesanias Peru - Esperanza and Raquel Artisan Story
Peru

ART-RJ-artisan-1

Cochas Chico and Coches Grande, twin farming villages nestled in the Andean mountains of Huancayo Peru, are home to a rich tradition of gourd carving. It's also home to Esperanza Palomino and Raquel Sabastian Rojas, two women who have established small fair-trade businesses to help create new jobs for the artisans in their village. Besides creating new jobs for artisans aged ten to sixty, both women manage work distribution from the main office to give priority to the families with the greatest need.

Owls in Black Gourd
   Funds 12 meals

Qty.
 

Two sitting owls and another with its wings spread ready to take flight adorn this decorative gourd. The black background produced by staining the gourd with a dye made of charcoal and oil setup a scene that is stunning and realistic. For more than 4,000 years artisans of the Andes have been practicing the technique of carving, etching, and burning designs onto gourds. While this ancient technique has been perfected and enhanced over time, the tools and process remains pretty much the same as was practiced by their ancestors thousands of years ago.

  • Measures 5-1/2” high x 5” diameter

Gourds are a natural and uniquely shaped vegetable, similar to a pumpkin or a squash. As such, designs and dimensions will vary.

Handmade in Peru and fair trade imported.
