Our Weavers | Handweaving indigenous stories into their designs for generations

In Andean culture weaving originated as a means of communication, a way of recording stories and passing them down through families and generations. Pre-Hispanic societies didn't have a system of writing so the expression of culture in their textiles is incredibly poignant. Countless indigenous Andeans desire to make their living through this culturally significant craft they have spent years perfecting and which has been passed down from generation to generation. This lifestyle is in perilous jeopardy, however, as the fast fashion movement has trained consumers to desire things produced quickly by laborers who are paid less than livable wages. 

As our weavers desire you to be moved by their work, your purchase in turn supports them in living their best lives. We all thank you!
