This beautiful hanging bird gourd decoration, called “mates burilados”, is hand carved and hand painted. Mates burilados are produced by talented artisans in the city of Cochas, in the centre of the Andes. This is a traditional process which was usually used for making plates and bowls, but now is mostly used for more elaborate decorative gourds. These artisans work with our fair trade partner Manos Amigas.
