Margarita and Martha
"We'd like the whole world to visit Peru, and, of course, to enjoy our favorite handicrafts."
"We wanted to make something pretty, and I wanted to be able to stay at home with my baby, Lorenzo," Margarita confides. And this satisfies both her creative needs and her role as the mother of a busy toddler. She and Martha both look after the boy and both design their ornaments.
"Everything we make uses Peruvian materials that few people take advantage of. We think they are just wonderful," the women say. "We'd like the whole world to visit Peru, and, of course, to enjoy our favorite handicrafts." The mother-daughter team provides job opportunites for other women who can also stay at home and take care of their children.
