Bringing Incan colors and designs to the tree, this set of four ornaments is designed by Peru's Huaman Paucar Family. The renowned artisans handcraft each ornament of ceramic, diligently painted with the vibrant motifs. A hollow body and little holes give each ornament the appearance of an instrument.
Huaman Paucar Family has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $900 and the most recent for $400. Proceeds were used to invest in the materials they use so that they can increase pottery production.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
