Filigree from Catacaos

Filigrana de Catacaos

The filigree industry from Catacaos is one of the most outstanding craftwork in Peru. INNOVARTE worked for the filigree artisan group “CITE JOYERIA”, jewellers who presented, at the beginning of the project, several problems based on their lack of competitiveness. This was due mainly to the fact that their products were getting out of date in modern markets, and stuck in form design and functions unchanged for many centuries

This project was carried out by INNOVARTE in 2003 and financed by the Peruvian Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (MINCETUR) and the Commission for Exports Promotion.
