Rocio's story

Rocio specializes in mate gourd crafts and decor. She would like to purchase the raw materials needed to increase production.

Rocio has been selling through NOVICA since 2000. This is her story:

Peruvian artisan Rocio finds joy in living and creating. "My work strives to show the inherent goodness of artisan craftsmanship. I enjoy sharing and teaching something so closely tied to our own culture. Over the years, I've been able to form a small working community of artisan families," she says. Apart from working with gourds, Rocio designs unique home furnishings that bear her distinct mark, with an emphasis on the use of natural materials.

"I want to thank you beforehand for all your support. Sometimes we all need a helping hand and not all financial institutions are willing to work with artisans. This is why you and NOVICA are such a wonderful source of support."
