Details

Ethically made

We follow the World Fair Trade Organisation's guidelines to ensure our practices are fair and improve the lives of those who work with us.

The strips with the Andean motifs have been handmade by women in a rural community in the Peruvian Andes. We pay them a fair wage and help the ones that want to set up their own local businesses. We also dedicate part of the profits to undertake development projects chosen by the women in the communities.

The sweatshirt was tailored in a small family-run factory in Lima. We only work with small factories that respect workers' rights and treat them with the love and respect they deserve.

Materials

The sweatshirt is made of 60% cotton and 40% polyester. 

The motifs have been made using a blend of alpaca and sheep wool, so they are soft to the touch.

The handmade motifs

Each motif tells a story and represents aspects of life in the community.

The motif across the chest is called Hakaku and represents a tool they use to cut the grass to feed the animals. Because of its shape, it's also commonly known as the claws of the puma, one of the three sacred animals for the Inkas. 

The motif on the shoulders that looks like an S represents the tool they use in the community to work the fields, which has the same shape. It's called cuty in Quechua, and the motif is named after it. Some women weave a line or dots in between the cutys, some don't. So even if your friend buys the same piece, the motifs may vary a bit, which makes every piece unique.

Beautiful colours and high quality

I bought this after having bought the black one. I loved it so much I decided to get another one. I love the combination of colours and the softness of the fabric. It’s easy to wear and goes well with everything.
