In a market dominated by mass-produced products made from synthetic and sometimes hazardous materials, we proudly make Peruvian handmade toys.
This year Alqo Wasi decided to expand its product line and launched a new ecological and sustainable dog toy, thinking in the well-being of our furry friends. The product is made 100% from sheep´s wool and designed in many eye-catching colors.
Using ancestral techniques of spinning and dying, these pure wool squeaky toys are a natural choice for your dog. Woven and crocheted toys are plumped with 100% raw natural sheep’s wool fill. We currently work with workshops in the communities of Ayacucho and Puno composed of young embroiders and weavers. Each toy is made entirely by hand by one artisan at a time. The process last at least 4 hours.
The Alqo Wasi family is a true lover of the Peruvian Andes and strongly believe in sustainable and eco-friendly products. Our mission is to arouse the conscious of our rich textile heritage while empowering our skilled local artisans.
When women earn their own income, the health and well-being of their families improves at a much faster rate than when men have the control of the family’s income. They can work plainly in their home with convenient production time frames and periodic quality control support.
