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 Carving is a traditional craft of the high Andean Mountains of Peru. Each gourd is skinned, cleaned and sundried before its surface is etched and burnt with the intricate designs that adorn its surface. These different looking gourds are shaped into a cat and a fish with a 3-dimensional tail added for an artistic flair. The detail is intricate and skillfully crafted. A unique decorative piece or a gift for cat and fish loving friends.
