"The Flowers of the Andes Association was born in Ayacucho on March 14, 2002. Our parents introduced us to handicrafts and we learned little by little, from them and from our colleagues, the grand masters of Ayacucho art. Two of us joined forces to form the association.
Our work began a year earlier with a program designed to combat violence within the family. We saw so many mothers, most of them abandoned by their husbands, who had no source of income. We organized groups of married women to embroider canvas shoes that were sold in a number of stores, thus giving them work they could do at home. Then we added cushion covers and embroidery. Five different artisan associations came together to become this larger association, Flowers of the Andes."
