These pens are the cutest gift or a fun pen to make your writing even more special!
The boy and girl are wearing the traditional Andes* outfits and the llama is originally from South America so these characters are the best way to learn about cultures and diversity!
*The South American Andean Mountains are the longest continental mountain range in the world.
Handicrafts used to be the main source of income for our artisan partners from Otavalo. Unfortunately, due to the high price of the USA dollar and this being the currency in Ecuador, tourism and tourist buyers have decreased dramatically. Artisans have been forced to work in other industries leaving behind the traditional crafts putting at risk indigenous ancestral techniques to be passed on. Your purchases give work security to families and communities while they preserve indigenous ancestral techniques!
