My name is José Manuel Ocas, I am from Cajamarca, Peru. I learned to craft since I was a child because my parents made vegetable fiber floors for Germany. After finishing my studies I traveled to Lima and in a street market I saw a bag made of vegetable fiber. I approached the seller and asked her if she needed more bags to sell. So she told me to make a sample. A week later she asked me to make a dozen bags because the sample had sold. After fifteen days the same lady told me she needed a hundred bags. So, yes, I bought material and devoted myself completely to the production of crafts until today. Other than that, the peruvian government hires me to train craftsmen who work with vegetable fiber but lack the quality finishing and other techniques. Join today my courses to learn how to make your own products with my techniques!
