Description

Fair Trade - From the Aymara people, an indigenous nation in South America, this 11 piece nativity is made entirely by hand with great detail and precision. In the traditional Aymara nativity the kings take the child gifts such as potatoes, fruit, and a sheep as they are all scarce in the Andean area more than 3000 meter above the sea level. The figures in this petite nativity set are tilincho, which in the Aymara language means small. The bright colors represent the current Aymara culture. Colors may vary. Hand crafted in Bolivia. Figures stand approx. 2.25 inches high.

Traditional red pottery inspired by the ancient Bolivian Tiwanaku culture. Each piece is made with great detail glazed or painted entirely by hand with a simple brush. Artisans: Aymara ceramic artisans in Bolivia have inherited and adapted the ancestral techniques and designs to share with the world through fair trade for a better quality of life. These artisans have a decent job that allows them to value their culture and teach it to their children. This Nativity set was acquired through a Fair Trade organization. Fair trade pays impoverished artisans a fair price for their work and puts people first, not profits.
