We buy directly from Q’ero weavers in their own villages at fair trade prices. We ensure we purchase something from every family. All profits are invested in the weaver’s community in education, food security, and health projects.
Andean textiles are a form of a symbolic language that tells the story of the people’s interdependence with the universe. The fields of color, lines, symbols, and the arrangement of all components combine like a visual poem to tell the story of life.
Our generous donors are funding the first high school in the ethnic Hapu Q’ero region of Peru. Children will no longer have to leave their families to attend secondary school. This new high school at 12,000 feet elevation in the Andes will bring relief to many families struggling to help their children get a basic education.
