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.
Suyana (meaning "hope") is wearing a lliklla over her shoulders. A lliklla is a handwoven, rectangular cloth that can be used as a shawl or as a method of carrying small belongings. The lliklla is traditionally held together by an ornamental pin called a tupu which can be made out of a variety of materials. Our favorite tupus are made out of spoons
