In Peru, we partner with Artisan Businesses working to bring opportunity to both the rural and urban areas of the country. In the capital city of Lima, we purchase from a talented third-generation silversmith who focuses on employing migrant workers who are vulnerable to exploitation. In the rural regions of the country, we partner with Artisan Businesses who provide flexible knitting and embroidery work to women, allowing them to work from home while their children play nearby.
For our Peruvian Artisan Partners, creating beautiful embroidery isn’t just a source of dignified work; it’s a means of preserving their culture. To create our collection, women stitch bold floral patterns and swirling motifs onto soft wool—bringing together traditional techniques with effortlessly modern silhouettes.
Our urban Peruvian Artisan Partners combine an expert level of skill with the finest metals and stones to create heirloom-quality accessories. The business is run by Fermin, a silversmith with a passion for creating opportunity for vulnerable people in his community.
