Artesanias Peru - Esperanza and Raquel Artisan Story


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.

You will love this this unique hand-carved Noah's Ark gourd ornament which whimsically illustrates the story of Noah's Ark in the Hebrew Bible. It makes a great decoration in your home as a way to celerate the Christmas season or for a child's room. On one side of the gourd is a carved image of Noah's Ark with elephants and other animals entering, on another side giraffes and birds waiting in line, and then there is a nicely etched image of Noah himself.

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

  • Height measures approximately 2-3/4"
  • Diameter measures approximately 2-1/2"

These ornaments are hand-carved in Peru and Fair Trade imported.
