Chocas Chico, Huancayo, Peru
Llamkay Tuki is the artisan group that was selected out of a large group of qualified artists. Daniel, Rosa, Virgilio, and Joel live and work in Cochas, Huancayo, Peru. Their name, in the Quechua language, can be translated as "beautiful work". They have learned how to pick out gourds of the best quality, which they clean carefully before they sketch the design on them in pencil. Daniel specializes in burning the design into the gourd; then Rosa carves the thin, delicate lines that outline the design. Working within Fair Trade has also taught this group how to run a business well.
