Details

Peruvian artisan Maria Ramos Sanchez handcrafts this pencil case with an arpillera style front, in which cotton blend felt is appliquéd and embroidered to create an elaborate scene. The artisan creates an Andean scene with a sitting in a valley of flowers, a village and grazing alpaca nearby, enjoying the mountain view. Embroidered across the sky are the words Ñoka Kuyayki, which are Quechua for "much love." The back and lining of the pencil case are black and the single compartment is secured with a zipper.

"?oka Kuyayki pouch: Beautiful and Practical"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love Ms. Marias applique! Her detailed wall hanging of mermaids already hangs in the bedroom. This is my first pouch, which is the right size for small knitting items. ?oka Kuyayki is vibrant and cute. I admire all the details: trees, flowers, animals, and people in her work. They make you smile. Will start giving these as gifts this year. Thank you!

"A lovely portrait of a woman caring for her llamas."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is one of many items I have purchased from Ms. Sanchez, including a coin purse, a wall hanging, and a pencil case . She is an extremely talented and imaginative artisan. This bag has such a lovely portrait of an Andean woman taking care of her llamas. Her portrayal of the beauty of her country delights me and makes me wish I could visit Peru. If you study her applique work you will find many interesting and beautiful things. I truly love everything she has made and sent to me, and I thank her.

Best Uses

  • Wear this and you will be asked "where did you get that?" a lot
