Flowers of the Andes Association from Peru

is the artisan in the spotlight this week

Artisan Flowers of the Andes Association Members of Peru's Flowers of the Andes Association say, 'From the time we were children, we saw our parents, friends and neighbors creating exquisite craft work and we wanted to do the same. The association was born in March, 2002, born of a program to combat violence within the family. We saw so many mothers, most of abandoned by their husbands, who had no source of income. We organized groups of married women to embroider, thus giving them work they could do at home.'
