Description Technical Specs
 
This beautifully detailed handmade "Campesina" doll is made by the Peruvian artisans of Cusco. This doll depicts the beautiful dress and style of the Andes region of Peru. The dolls are created from handwoven "manta" wool textiles that are dyed with natural plant dyes typical of the Andean weavers. Your child will fall in love with these dolls holding their very own baby just like my daughter did. Each Campesina doll is holding an adorable swaddled baby typical of the tradition of the Peruvian Indians as they work, do business, and sell their potatoes. Help your child come up with beautiful names for mother and baby. This beautiful campesina doll made from traditional manta textiles is rich with history and culture. Spark curiosity in your child and introduce them to the native South America tradition. I purchased these dolls from artisan "Faustina Benito" (featured below) on a buying trip with my children in Pisac which is in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.
