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.

The "Red Bird" is a loved bird and has made its way into many songs and poems. "I've been dreaming of a red bird, and the peace of its gentle wings, it's an omen of better things....". Hang these red birds in your house; we hope that they will make your home more peaceful and bring you lovely things."

Gourd Carving is a traditional craft of the high Andean Mountains of Peru. Each gourd is skinned, cleaned, and sun-dried before artisans etch and burn the intricate designs that adorn its surface. Gourds are also a natural and uniquely shaped vegetable, similar to a pumpkin or a squash. As such, designs, shape and dimensions will vary slightly.

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

Handmade, carved, and etched by artisans in Peru and fair trade imported.
