Home / Pokoloko - Hand Embroidered Ornament - Antique
DescriptionThese ornaments are made by female victims of domestic & sexual violence organized together as a group of artisans by three peruvian female entrepreneurs. These makers carefully cut a synthetic felt base into shape, and then hand-embroider each ornament’s design with an alpaca blended yarn. Their artisanal work gives each of these women sustainable income sources for themselves and their families.
The female makers of these ornaments collaborate with Poko on designing each ornament, and then once a prototype is finalized, the women start the production of hand-making each and every piece.
100% felt based. Embroidered with 20% alpaca 80% synthetic yarn
