Peru’s handicraft highly demanded in Italy

Isabel Guerra

According to Andina, hand-made craft products manufactured by mothers from Huancayo are highly demanded in the Italian market, thanks to productive craft workshops that the Provincial Council is promoting.

The Economic and Tourist Development Management of this council is in charge of training the local mothers with the support of the Business Promotion and Development Center (Ceprode).

These handmade products are also traded in the local market in cities such as Lima, Arequipa and Chiclayo (Lambayeque).

The material is resistant and durable.

Currently, over 500 mothers of the social programs Vaso de Leche and Comedores Populares (Welfare Kitchen) take part in these train courses.
