Jupa

San Juan de Miraflores, Lima, Peru

The name JUPA is an acronym for a group called "United Youth of Pamplona Alta" in a village in the highest part of the district of San Juan de Miraflores, south of Lima. These women use this art, along with their excellent sewing skills to fashion coin purses, eyeglass cases, and hair accessories, as well as detailed wall hangings. Because this work is so delicate, it takes very small pieces of fabric, and they can use recycled material or remnants from nearby clothing manufacturers. Also, through this business, they have found a source of work that allows them to be with their small children during the day.

The artisan group Jupa is comprised of two young mothers, Balvina Huaytalla and Herlinda Escriba, who make beautiful arpilleras, a uniquely South American detailed form of appliqué.
