Alejandrina was born in 1959 in Andahuaylas, a charming city located in the Central part of the Peruvian Andes at 3,000 m a.s.l. She is married and is mother of three children Maria del Pilar, Rocio and Christian.
Alejandrina learnt her artwork almost by chance and because she needed to do something to work. At the beginning, she practiced a lot to become a master with the brush and used to buy the vases from a supplier. Later when she had more orders she was able to start doing the vases at her own place.
Alejandrina, Can you share something with us? “I’ve been working with vases for the last 20 years. This is my passion; I love to design and paint. I transmit this to my family and my teamwork. For me Fair Trade is a way of living, not only in business but also in the way you treat your family, your neighbors, people at the street etc. I don’t want people to buy my creations because of charity; this is why we take care of each detail. If you see the vases you will love them, they are perfect.”
