Casa de la Mujer Artesana Manuela Ramos (The Manuela Ramos Womens Artisan Centre)
You'll like their dearly loved ancestral and local handicrafts that are handmade by Quechua and Aymara women.
Power to the women.
If you want to take back lovely souvenirs from Peru, the best option is to help promote local arts and crafts made by women who are possibly those who need more support, in order to be integrated into the market. To do this, you can visit the 'Casa de la Mujer Artesana Manuela Ramos’, which has been operating since 1993 as a revitalizing force of local commerce. Here you'll be able to find dolls made of wool and other fabrics, ponchos, shawls, scarves, purses and other decorative objects that recover the ancient craft of the women from quechua and aymara de Puno, among other regions. It is estimated that around 900 families will benefit from each project that this association starts and most of all, the great value of handicrafts made by Peruvian women is recognized, to whom the association teaches weaving and how to sell their small works of art, in order to be free from poverty.
