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.

An assortment of three Bolivian musicians playing traditional instruments adorn these gourds: the 'Charango' (a guitar like instrument), the 'Tarka' or 'Quena' (a type of flute) and a Wakrapuku (conch shell horn). These fair trade gourds are hand crafted by artisans in Huancayo, Peru where there is a long and rich tradition in craft production and together make a perfect gift for music loving friends and family.
