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.

Rose buds, sunflowers and honeybees are hand painted on these napkin holders that can also be used as a desk top accessory for holding letters/envelopes.

These holders are handcrafted from gourds by artisans in Huancayo Peru where gourd carving is a traditional craft that spans many generations. Each gourd is skinned, cleaned, and sun-dried before artisans etch and burn the intricate designs that adorn its surface. Purchase of these gourds helps to provide economic and social support to Peruvian artisans and their families.

  • Measures 4” high x 3-1/2” diameter

Gourds are a natural and uniquely shaped vegetable, similar to a pumpkin or a squash. As such, designs and dimensions may vary slightly.

Handmade, carved and painted in Peru and fair trade imported.
