Hand Carved Wood Quena Flutes via Fair Trade from Peru

Hand Carved Wood Quena Flutes available via Fair Trade from Peru

Hand crafted by Francisco Quispe, these flutes are made in the traditional way using "carriso", a bamboo-like plant that grows at the edge of rivers and mountain lakes.

Francisco has made his flutes since he was a little boy growing up in Cuzco. In the Andes of Peru children use the quena flute to interpret tunes.

All flutes come individually wrapped in plastic sleeves with a story card. Colors are assorted, purple, red, blue, green, yellow, orange, pink and sage.
