The Peru Gift Show features more than 100 artisan groups ranging from established exporters with over twenty years of experience in international markets to rural artisan cooperatives focused on cultural preservation.
A wide variety of products from across the country are showcased at the Peru Gift Show, including carved and painted wood, accent furniture, reverse painted glass, ceramics, jewelry, natural fiber products, gourds, home and fashion textiles, including alpaca, cotton and wool.
Founded in 1998, Peru Gift Show is held in conjunction with PeruMODA, featuring 250+ Peruvian apparel, jewelry and textile companies, and participants are welcome to visit both shows. Last year, more than 12,000 visitors attended, including retailers, wholesalers and designers from the United States, USA, Canada, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Colombia, Japan, Holland, Germany, France, Italy, the United Kingdom and Sweden. Over $4.8 million in business was generated.
A defining feature of the show is special exhibit area Peru Home, the collaborative effort of designers Alejandro Rincon and Rocio del Barco. Taking inspiration from Peru’s rainforest and jungle ecosystems, they are working this year with 10 leading exporters to develop new products mixing contemporary design with Peruvian artisan culture. The new products will be on display in curated home settings. Sustainability is a major message for Peru Home this year.
The Peru Gift Show invites a select group of US buyers to attend the Peru Gift Show with an offer of complimentary travel and accommodations. Please contact Karen Gibbs at Karen@byhandconsulting.com if your company has import experience and is interested in working with Peruvian artisan products.
