Materials

We are committed to sourcing our materials locally, which means we keep our environmental footprint lower and support the local economy. But that's not all - by sourcing locally, we ensure that our products are made by craftspeople who are passionate about their work and invested in the communities where they live.

El arte de bordar en El Colca

The embroideries on this blouse are handmade by a women-led association named "El arte de bordar en El Colca" located in Yanque, Arequipa.

The association is made up of around twenty women and within this group they actively promote the participation of women in family incomes. Vilma Mamani Paxi is the president of the association. With their work they want to pass on the practice of embroidery, which is part of the identity of the Colca Valley.

Their embroideries represent the local flora and fauna of the environment. Peruvians nowadays have strong roots in the Incas times. Their perception of time is circular, not linear as we see it today. That vision translated in embroideries such as the spiral that stands for the cycle of life.
