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.


Gourd Mother & Baby Owl Hand-Carved by Artisans in Peru

Gourd Mother Owl and Baby
   Funds 5 meals

Qty.
 

Look at this cute Mother Owl and Baby...how can you look at them and not say "Awww". She is caring for it and hoping to find a loving home where she can raise her adorable child. They were hand-carved, given life, by an artisan in Huancayo, Peru. Each gourd is skinned, cleaned and sundried before its surface is etched and burnt with the intricate designs that adorn its surface. They make a Hoot of an ornament to sit on the shelf, desk, as a decoration for the home or office, or as a gift for owl lovers.

  • Measures 3" high x 3" diameter at base

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

Handmade in Peru and Fair Trade imported
