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.

"too pretty for pens"

I purchased this to carry my pens but when it arrived it was just too beautiful to be tucked away in my bag so I put it up on my wall. The craftmanship is spectacular and I just love looking at it.

"?oka Kuyayki pouch: Beautiful and Practical"

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!

"I was a little nervous when I offered this to my brother and sister-in-law"

as a hanging for the nursery a few months before their first child was born. But my sister-in-law is a big traveler and it was fine for a boys or girls room, so I offered it. She was delighted and her mom designed the babys room around it (llamas on the curtains!). They used it for both kids. One would regularly insist on being held up to look at it carefully after a diaper change. I always try to be a cool auntie. This wall hanging was my first success.

"Beautiful and Functional Cell Case"

Ms. Sanchezs embroideries are both spectacular and functional. We have one of her wall hangings, which is very whimsical. Also Ive given several of these phone cases and also the cosmetic cases as gifts. The details of the images are wonderful. Im partial to the ones with flowers and animals. I use this case in particular to carry my phone around the house when I dont have pockets and it works great. Its nice to have something fun and beautiful that also has a practical use. Definitely one of your big fans. Thank you for making my life more interesting.
