Luz & Sandra

Luz Escobar
Luz is from Lima and met her husband Marco Antonio when she was studying in Huancayo, a valley in the mountains of Perú. Her husband worked originally in metals, making home accessories, and with this experience they were able to move to Lima and start working in making jewelry with alpaca metal, bronze, and Peruvian stones. In the 1970s they made jewelry for backpacker travelers to Peru and slowly learned more about the business. Luz remembers that in the beginning it was very hard because she had to knock on doors to sell her products and she wasn’t always received in such a welcoming way. But slowly they made contacts and were able to sell more steadily to people with clients in other countries, including Minga Fair Trade Imports.

They currently have a workshop with 10 workers, and work in conjunction with six additional artisan families who work from their homes. Many members of Luz’s family are in the business and they are known for their organization and strong word to finish orders on time.
