Peruvian crafts

Project Peru supports a number of organisations and women's groups who make cards, arpilleras* and other craft work in their homes, by buying their products at a fair price to sell at craft stalls in the UK.

 [*Arpilleras are a popular art form that has developed in the shanty towns of Latin America, using scraps of material, wool etc. to depict scenes of traditional life]
