Naguska provides primarily female artisans from rural areas in the Peruvian highlands and from neighborhoods surrounding Lima with the opportunity to supplement their income by creating handmade products. Most of these artisans work from home, so they are able to care for their children and fulfill their other domestic responsibilities while also bringing in an income that allows them to improve their family’s quality of life.
This product is intended for decorative purposes only and not as a toy. Please keep out of reach of small children at all times. As your baby grows, you will need to raise the mobile (or drop your crib mattress if placed over a crib) so that the mobile remains outside of your child’s grasping range.
