Craftsmanship and Origin: This exquisite cushion is made in Peru, in a suburban area known as Jicamarca. Meet Valentina, the skilled artisan behind the creation of this design. Valentina faces the daily challenge of navigating the traffic in Lima, spending 3 to 4 hours commuting to our office where she dedicates her expertise to crafting these unique cushions.
Valentina’s story is one of resilience and community support. Several months ago, she received an order that allowed her to collaborate with her neighbours in Jicamarca. As a mother and wife, Valentina plays a crucial role in supporting her family’s economy. Her husband faces challenges in finding employment, so she combines her homemaking duties with her passion for knitting and crochet to contribute to their livelihood.
By choosing the LIMA Grey Hand Crochet Cushion, you not only bring a piece of artisanal beauty into your home but also support Valentina and her community in Jicamarca. Each cushion is a testament to the dedication and skill of a proud expert knitter, making it a unique and meaningful addition to your space.
