Perros de Peru
These hand-stitched dogs bark up the right tree--your Christmas tree! Each cuddly, palm-sized hound, retriever, pug, bulldog, and more yips to life with the needlework of fair trade artisans working out of the southern Highlands of Peru, on the shores of Lake Titicaca. The women who knit the ornaments come from an agricultural community where they're normally engaged in farming activities. These lovable puppies provide the talented artisans with additional income and allow them to carry on traditional needlecrafting techniques to the next generation. Handmade in Peru.
