Manos Amigas Artisan Story
Peru

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.

"Ho Ho Ho...Merry Christmas" is Santa's wish for you this holiday season. It's a tradition for children to sit on Santa's Lap to have their photo taken. But on this ornament a squirrel is sitting on his lap; it just goes to show you that both children and animals enjoy the spirit of giving. Santa is carrying your Christmas Tree under his arm, and if you look at his back side he may be sitting in the lap of a reindeer. Hang him on the tree and he will wish all who enter a very Merry Christmas.

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.

  • Santa Claus Ornaments measure approximately: 4-1/2" high x 2-1/2" diameter
  • Measurements will vary slighty due to size of the Gourd 

Handmade and fair trade imported from Peru.
