Artesanias Peru - Esperanza and Raquel Artisan Story


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.

Hand etched and carved, this gourd ornament is a masterpiece of work and will be a prized possession for every gourd and art lover. The detailed and intricate background is a tiny floral repeat, reminding one of a liberty print style. The beautiful background covers the entire surface and creates a texture feeling which is highlighted with ladybug motifs. A contemporary composition - truly a piece of art.
