These dolls are made using natural fibres (from the interior -stuffed with pure sheep's wool- to the doll's hair made from alpaca yarn).
When you buy these dolls, you are giving your support to indigenous women who for the first time have found a sustainable job. The women wash, card and spin the wool used for hair, sweaters and shoes, sewing and knitting all the distinctive clothes. Hand dyed fibres colour the hats and ponchos. Much of the dye used is made from local plants. The doll's clothing reflects a variety of styles worn by the rural people.
These Waldorf dolls are the result of a social project working with indigenous women living in a Quechua community in Cusco.

About the artists
These Waldorf dolls are the result of a social project working with indigenous women living in a Quechua community in Cusco, Peru. The project has been running for several years and empowers women by teaching them skills needed to make these dolls and earn a decent and stable income while working not far away from their own homes. The project provides housing for the workshops and has a day-care centre where women can bring their small kids to play and learn while they are working. The women are divided in groups and each group is in charge of a determined activity such as spinning, carding, weaving, cutting the textiles, using the sewing machine, stuffing the dolls, sawing the dolls parts by hand, making the eyes and hair, creating and knitting the outfits, dress the dolls, etc. The project is located outside Cusco and is surrounded by green mountains, the spinners and knitters love to work in the open (see photo top middle and top right).

Supporting Fair Trade
PERU ART AUSTRALIA works closely with several Fair Trade organisations in PERU, CAMBODIA and VIETNAM. We travel to these countries and visit the artists at their workshops or homes. We love to know the people we work with, that is, the artists themselves and the people in charge of these organisations. We love to meet the artists in person to know about their work, their culture, current and future projects, and their dreams for the future. We are happy to be a channel for their crafts and pay a Fair price for their handcrafts (all the artists have already been paid for their works).
We recently visited Cambodia and Vietnam (Jan 2010) and are happy to announce the incorporation of "Rehab Craft Cambodia" and "Reaching Out Vietnam" to our net of Fair Trade organisations we work with. Both organisations train and employ disabled people providing career opportunities, a fair income and hope for their future. Furthermore, "Rehab Craft Cambodia" trains and employs victims of landmines. These people have touched our hearts and we will do our best to support their work, their right for a decent life and hope for their future.
Some of the Fair Trade organisations' logos, we work with, appear down below.
