Manos Amigas Artisan Story

artisan-2_173x219Peru’s native Shipibo tribes are known for their strong cultural heritage, unique cosmology and their unmistakable ceramic arts. Unfortunately, Shipibo villagers also suffer from extreme poverty, and most live without access to basic education and medical care in poor villages along the Río Ucayali, a tributary of the Amazon River. Manos Amigas (Friendly Hands) works with the Shipibo villagers to develop their traditional craft and helps export their vases, sculpture and ornaments to the United States and Europe. Manos Amigas also offers free courses in design, accounting and business marketing and helps artisans identify new markets for their crafts.

Mouse Gourd Ornament
   Funds 6 meals


Eeek..a mouse! If you look at the bottom of this ornament, it looks like he snuck into somebody's house and stole either a piece of cheese or piece of pizza. Ahh...but he's so cute, maybe somebody is feeding him. Hang him on the tree or in you home and he'll scare away all the buglers and protect your home.

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.

  • Mouse Ornaments measure approximately: 3-1/4" long x 2-1/2" diameter
  • Measurements will vary slighty due to size of the Gourd 

Handmade and fair trade imported from Peru.
