There are rural areas in South America where the indigenous population can farm sustainably but there’s no opportunity for outside employment. In the region surrounding Ayacucho, Peru, a magnificent visual culture has been created through craftmanship. We collaborate with artisans to help sustain this culture by building a marketplace for their wares.
MAKE A LONG TERM COMMITMENT TO OUR ARTISAN
PARTNERS AND GENERATE SUSTAINABLE LIVELIHOODS
We believe that by focusing on a few small regions we can keep our artisans working throughout the year. That maximizes their earnings and has the greatest impact on their families and communities.
TREAT OUR ARTISANS AS BUSINESS OWNERS
We respect and trust our producers and that’s reflected in how we conduct our business. By paying for our orders in full when they’re placed, our groups can buy materials and meet payrolls without having to seek outside financing.
