Instead of Ponchos and Chullos, high-quality cuddly toys from fair trade
In Peru there are Ponchos and Chullos, people live at over 4000 m height and speak Quechua? All half truths, which make people forget that Peru is a country with precious resources, the finest natural fibres and highly competitive Know-Hows. And yes, in Peru there are Ponchos and Chullos, there are also many people, who live in the mountains high above and actually many people still speak Quechua, the language of the Inca culture.
Our knitters live, speak and dress as described above. But what they produce are the finest knitting garments from natural fibres, as they’ve become appreciated world-wide by designer fashion labels. For their products, the women receive a good price; this is ensured by the Non profit organization Manuela Ramos, which has been successfully fighting for many years for the autonomy efforts of women in Peru.
