The Monkey Project’s founder, Nubia Echevarria, moved to her parent’s native country of Peru for a year. While living in the small town of Huancayo, known as the Artisan capital of Peru, Nubia was inspired by the talent the native artisans possessed. This beautiful mountain town, nestled in the heart of the Andes, was rich in craftsmanship but lacked work opportunity. Nubia wanted to provide a platform for these artisans & their talent – this was the catalyst for The Monkey Project.
