"Mosqoy is a non-profit organization that works towards global sustainability and resilience by empowering local Quechua culture through networking, storytelling, education and social enterprise. Among our programs, Mosqoy Peruvian Textiles partners with Quechua weavers to keep their art and culture alive through the revitalization of authentic hand-woven textiles that use natural fibres and dyes. We do this by helping weavers to commercialize their textiles for local and global fair-trade market outlets, facilitating capacity-building initiatives, and supporting community-led development projects in the communities we work with. We currently partner with 5 weaving associations across the Cusco region, in the communities of Amaru, Huaran, Cancha Cancha, Parobamba and Pitukiska. In total, we have supported over 200 weavers from 11 communities."
-Ashli Akins, Founder of Mosqoy

Made-to-order: For special made-to-order times, please refer to product description for exact timeline which will include production time.
