"Threads of Peru is a non-profit social enterprise that connects the world to handmade treasures of the Andes, helping to strengthen ancient craft techniques and empower artisans. Our products represent the work and heritage of 100 weavers, 95% of whom are women and 5% are men. We work with 7 associations across the Cusco Region, in the areas of Ocongate, Mapacho Valley, and the Sacred Valley, Peru."
"Our designs are always produced in collaboration and conversation with artisans to ensure that all designs and techniques belong to the region and community where they are being made. Our work provides an opportunity for artisans, particularly women, to earn supplemental income while continuing to live a traditional lifestyle and care for their families. Our dream is that this opportunity will inspire young people to take pride in their cultural heritage and pass it along for centuries to come."
- Ligia Gomez, Project Coordinator at Threads of Peru
