Art from the heartPuro Corazón is the perfect name for this company, maker of handbags and accessories that are a labor of love. All the pieces are handmade and if you take a closer look, you’ll see the amazing attention to detail that went into each piece, proudly created by Peruvian seamstresses. Every time I see something made by Puro Corazón, I’m reassured that you can use the traditional Peruvian crafts without the feeling that you are wearing a touristy souvenir. The handbags and wallets have beautiful embroideries, done by such skilled hands that I’ve only seen their equal in the Peruvian mountains, in the skirts and blankets created by the local women there. The colors used are a perfect connection with the Peruvian people’s lives. You can get modern pieces to bring a touch of color to everyday life, while paying homage to their Peruvian heritage.
