Our traditional Peruvian dolls are 100% hand made in Cuzco, Peru. We’ve given each of them a unique Quechuan name. The Quechua people are indigenous to the highlands of the Andes Mountains in South America. All dolls feature hand loomed and hand woven clothing made out of wool, alpaca, and cotton fibers. The sandals, or ojotas, are crafted out of recycled rubber from tire inner tubes.
Miszki (meaning "honey" or "sweet") is holding her baby in a woven blanket called a q’ipi, which can also be used to carry belongings. Miszki is also carrying a basket of potatoes signifying the potato’s historic origins in Peru. There are over 4,000 species of potato native to Peru
