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 on this sweatshirt is called Mayoqenqo. The zigzag represents the mountains. The black around the zigzag represents the paths. The circles represent the eyes of the animals they breed, like bulls and lamas.

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. This makes every piece unique and special.

I wear it all day long!!

As you can see from my photo, I am obsessed with Handmade stories' products!! I've got the sweatshirt, earrings and scrunchie! If it's your first time buying something from them, start with one of their sweatshirts! They're so comfortable that I wear mine all day long and the colour is perfect for every season. I'm a size S but I like my sweatshirts to be oversized so I was thinking of buying an M/L but in the end I went for an S/M. It adjusts to your body perfectly and has the oversized effect so it's perfect - I love it!

Nice sweatshirt!

I bought this as a present for my wife, and she really liked it! Comfortable design and unique motifs... and we are happy to support the local artisans in Peru.
