Threads of Peru | Peru
Threads of Peru is a not-for-profit social enterprise that has been working with artisans in the Andes since 2009. Their aim is to connect the world to handmade treasures, helping to strengthen the centuries-old Quechua weaving tradition and empower artisans.
Threads of Peru share this passion for traditional craft, and also invest in skills-building and capacitation for the weavers with whom they work to produce only the highest quality, 100% natural textiles.
Threads of Peru works with weavers who are predominantly women. International development studies show that when women receive their own income, the health and well-being of their children improves at a much faster rate than when men have sole control of the family’s income.
