One World Gourd Ornament - Single Person View
Measures 2-1/2” high x 2-3/4” diameter - Crafted by Artisans in Peru
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.

This wonderful gourd ornament with people joining hands, represents how all in this world are truly a part of a global family and that when we reach out in love and peace, then together we can help and care for each other and resolve not only the problems of individuals, families, and communities but solve many of our global problems like the environment, health-care, education, poverty, women's and children's rights, world peace and more.

Put it on your tree or hang it in your home as a reminder of how we are all part of the same family.

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 2-1/2” high x 2-3/4” diameter

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