Peru's Benita Cutipa says, 'I received a teaching degree in textiles. I wanted to do something that would help my country's development and empower our women, and I began organizing courses for mothers and farm wives. I also offer classes to people from marginalized neighborhoods, training them in handicrafts and forming cottage industries that would work with the region's natural resources.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
