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.

3-piece Nativity
   Funds 11 meals


This handmade 3-piece nativity set is a great way to celebrate Christmas and a perfect gift for family and friends this holy season. The alluvial clay used for these ceramics comes from the banks of the Ucayali river, a tributary of the Amazon. Most of the color pigments such as red, yellow, white and black used to decorate these ceramic surfaces also occur naturally in the area. Age old indigenous and traditional methods are still in practice for creating these pieces of art.

This nativity set is hand-crafted by traditional artisans of the Shapibo tribe of Peru, known for their quality ceramic art. Manos Amigas (Friendly Hands) assist the Shipibo villagers in exporting their products and in community development programs.
