These ornaments are made by female victims of domestic and sexual violence organized together as a group of artisans by three Peruvian female entrepreneurs. These artisans come from communities of extreme poverty. The purchase of these ornaments generates local employment for these vulnerable humans living in marginal urban areas of Peru. The female makers of these ornaments collaborate with Poko on designing each ornament, and then once a prototype is finalized, the women start the production of hand making each and every piece. These makers carefully cut a felt base into shape, and then hand-embroider each ornament's design with an alpaca blended yarn. Their artisanal work gives each of these women sustainable income sources for them and their families.

 

100% synthetic felt base embroidered with 20% alpaca 80% synthetic yarn
