About the Artisans:
Allpa is named for a Quechua Indian word that means "earth."  Allpa is a Peruvian craft trading company providing marketing assistance to artisan groups and family workshops throughout Peru.  In addition, Allpa provides technical help, product development advice, skills training, tools and appropriate equipment to artisans.  Artisans can access short-term and mid-term loans to improve infrastructure and their workshops.  Allpa works with families located in several areas as well as Shipibo people living in the Amazon rainforest area of Pucalepa.  For most of these people, craft production is a sole source of income.   Allpa began active work as an alternative trading organization in 1986.
