Welcome to the Q’ewar Project, Australia.
Welcome to the Australian website for The Q’ewar Project, Peru. This project began in 2002. It is a social and economic initiative working with the indigenous women living in the peasant rural community of Q’ewar, in a small town outside Cuzco, called Andahuaylillas. Q’ewar produces items of quality, using only natural materials, handmade. By providing open, bright and comfortable workshops where the beautiful handcrafted dolls, doll clothing and other articles are created, Q’ewar has created an atmosphere which fosters self-esteem, personal growth and a way to gain economic independence through learning life skills in a community setting.
We hope you will take time to look around the website and learn more about how this inspiring and wonderful project.. You may decide to buy a beautiful hand crafted “doll for life” – a doll that can be kept for a life time and passed down the generations. We hope you will enjoy your visit.
