These ornaments are made by female victims of domestic and sexual violence organized together as a group of artisans by three Peruvian female entrepreneurs. These artisans come from communities of extreme poverty.
The purchase of these ornaments generates local employment for these vulnerable humans living in marginal urban areas of Peru.
