Elegant butterflies explore a lush floral garden against a black background on the surface of this decorative box from Peru, featuring gold-tone trim around the edges. Asunta Pelaez works with a team of dedicated artisans, painting the beautiful motifs by hand on the inside of glass panes that cover the box's panels. The lid of the box opens to reveal a simple interior in black.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

In 2016, Asunta was diagnosed with a serious throat disease. She has no health insurance and uses her earnings from NOVICA to fund her treatments. She also has a husband and her workers who depend on her. Through all this, she has shown such perseverance and strength and continues to work hard and balance her responsibilities.

Asunta uses the traditional Peruvian technique of reverse painted glass. Brought to Peru during the colonial period, every detail is done by hand, requiring great skill and patience. She teaches the technique to others through her workshop and hopes those in her workshop will continue to practice and pass down the traditional technique to keep it alive for future generations.

Asunta’s sales have increased more than 3 times since starting with Novica. When she first started out, she had a small workshop with two part-time assistants. Now she is able to rent a larger space close to her home and provide work for more people.

Asunta employs three single mothers in her workshop who support a total of six children, one of whom has a disability. Asunta and the mothers rely on their sales for steady income to support themselves, their children and their children's education.

In addition to the artisans she employs full time, Asunta works with one temporary artisan — another NOVICA artisan who helps Asunta with the most physically demanding parts of her work because of her illness.

Asunta’s sales are critical to supporting herself, her elder husband and her workers along with their families. Her personal health situation makes each sale that much more important.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Thank you Asunta for the beautiful trio of mirrors, I adore them! The way you presented the Floral Glory - beautifully wrapped and carefully packaged was a mirror reflection of the same care and love you pour into your creations.
