Here’s what you can get in this quarter’s box:

  • Soft Teal 100% Baby Alpaca Shawl for her or him  This luxuriously soft deep teal shawl is knit from a baby alpaca wool blend by Peruvian artisans Raquel and Gregor. Once reserved for Inca royalty, baby alpaca ranks with cashmere as one of the world’s most coveted fibers for distinctive knitwear. Warm yet lightweight, baby alpaca refers to the finest fleece obtained from the season’s first shearing.
  • Hand Painted Red Ceramic Bull Sculpture Floral ‘Little Red Pucara Bull’ – A charming red bull tells the story of the torito de Pucará, a bull that was to be sacrificed by the people of Pucara in order to bring much-needed rain. However, the bull resisted, using its horn to pierce the side of a mountain, bringing a flood of water that pleased the people of Pucara. Maribel Posso Olivares draws inspiration from that myth, crafting this ceramic figurine in the characteristic style of Pupuja, painting the red bull by hand with metallic-colored accents and multicolored floral motifs.
  • Colorful Bird and Flowers Hand Painted Gourd Desk Accessory ‘Whistle While You Work’ – Brighten up your desk or office with this colorful pen and pencil holder, hand-painted with birds and flowers and with a scalloped rim. By Teodolinda Seguil of Peru, this charming mate gourd is engraved by hand.
  • Handmade Stretch Bracelets of Brown Ceramic Beads ‘Soul of the Andes’ – Terracotta conveys a connection with the earth in three beautiful bracelets. Working in red Andean clay, Dina crafts beads of differing shapes and colors. Some are glazed, others reveal incised motifs.
  • Andean Floral Hand Tooled Leather Catchall – Peruvian craftsman Johnny Jimenez hand tools the floral star blossoms motif on leather, which he transforms into a catchall by tying the straps on the corners and finishes the centerpiece with walnut stain and matte finish lacquer.
  • Embroidered Wool Snowflake Ornaments ‘Vibrant Snowflake’– Vibrant hand-embroidery accents three wool snowflake ornaments handcrafted by the artisans of the Sumaq Qara Association in Ayacucho, Peru. The association works with locally sourced materials and is dedicated to preserving the textile traditions of the Andes.
