The organization called ComArt Tukuypaj is made up of Bolivian artisan families who, for many generations, continue maintaining the culture and roots of local products in Bolivia, especially for breeding the alpaca in Los Andes, which allow the economic and social development of local population based on sustainability and respect for the animal and its environment.
