THE MAKERS

Intercrafts Peru is a nonprofit civic association promoting export sales of Peruvian handicrafts. A democratic cooperative of artisan groups, Intercrafts Peru allows artisans full participation in organizational decisions. The group's aim is to keep overhead costs low, to share responsibility so more income remains in the hands of the artisans, and to explore new markets. The association's headquarters are located in Lima with other offices situated in the marginal districts and communities of Lima, Ayacucho, Huancayo, Cuzco, Puno, Arequipa and Piura. Benefits to members include health care, loan funds and advances, school supplies and books, training programs and technical assistance. Ten Thousand Villages has purchased products from Intercrafts Peru since 1993.
