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.

The gourd box is a great way to store jewelry, keepsakes, paperclips, and keys. It can be displayed on the mantel or just on the table. This frog gourd box, hand-carved by Peruvian artisans, makes a perfect gift for yourself, family and friends.
