Your soon-to-be-favorite dungarees. They've been carefully crafted paying attention to every detail to ensure their playful style doesn’t compromise comfort. They're made of soft denim using 100% cotton which means they're super soft, easy to wear, and made to last.
To add an even more special touch to them, their front has traditional Andean motifs handwoven by women in Peru. As the motifs are handmade, we only make a hundred pieces of each design. This means you’ll be wearing a unique piece that only a lucky few will have.
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 strip with the Andean motifs has 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 dungarees were 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.
The handmade motifs
Each motif tells a story. This motif is called ley, and it's composed of Xs and rhombus. The Xs represent the paths in and around the community, and the rhombuses represent the small lakes you can find in their mountains. This is one of the designs they learn to weave first.
Please note that each woman may weave the motifs slightly differently so the ones in your clothes might not look exactly the same as the ones in the picture. The Xs and Os can be white with a black background or black with a white background. This makes every piece unique and special.
These dungarees are made of 100% cotton. They are super soft and will allow you to move freely.
The motifs have been made using a blend of alpaca and sheep wool, so they are soft to the touch.
I love the simple design and knowing I’m helping women in Peru with my purchase. The fabric is soft, perfect for summer!
