One way the Center for Amazon Community Ecology creates sustainable livelihoods and promotes forest conservation is helping native artisans to develop and market innovative handicrafts. Our Bora and Huitoto artisan partners from the native villages of Brillo Nuevo and Puca Urquillo along the Ampiyacu River in Peru have woven six beautiful designs of hot pads with chambira palm fiber that we are offering to people who support the CACE Ampiyacu Project in Peru on GlobalGiving through May. A decorative hot pad would be a great gift for any mother here that would help a native mom and her community in the Amazon. See more photos of artisans with hot pads.
