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.

This evening pouch made from a gourd is an elegant and "earth conscious" choice for your evening engagements. Geometric patterns adorn the bottom and it comes with a handmade crochet top and pull string closures. Gourd Carving is a traditional craft of the high Andean Mountains of Peru. Each gourd is skinned, cleaned, and sun-dried before artisans carve, etch, and burn the intricate designs that adorn its surface. A beautiful and stylish accessory for the fashionista.

  • Measures 3” high x 3-1/4” diameter
  • Braided cord with a 23" drop
  • Geometric designs vary

Gourds are a natural and uniquely shaped vegetable, similar to a pumpkin or a squash. As such, designs and dimensions will vary slightly. Handmade, carved, etched, and burned in Peru and fair trade imported.
