The finger puppets, which are crocheted by eye from drawings, are made by women’s groups organised in associations in the highland areas of Puno. Approximately 60 women are involved in production, some of whom are in the rural areas on the banks of Lake Titikaka. Handicraft production allows the women to supplement the small income which their families make from farming.
