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.
Sumaq (meaning "beautiful") is wearing pants with the traditional embroidery of the Colca Mountains region. His small bag is called a chuspa which is used to carry coca leaves. Coca leaves have been used for centuries by the Andean peoples as treatment for various ailments. Chuspas have been depicted on artifacts from the Andean region that are as old as the first millenium! If that’s not timeless fashion, then we don’t know what is!
