Our work with artisans
We measure our impact through the generation of social change. We work closely with artisans, producers, cooperatives, and SMEs to develop positive management, timeless design, and communication practices which in turn contribute to job creation and further growth of the camelid fiber industry in South America.
We have increased
the capacity of 27 fiber producers and 364 artisan groups, counting 3,023 people and their families.
We have developed
a business network of almost 7,500 artisans by helping them meet the volume and quality standards that the fashion market demands. Resulting in successfully becoming integrated into the global market and being offered more economic opportunities.
Engaging the industry
In collaboration with fashion schools, we model the next generation of designers and work directly with internationally recognized designers.
Trained design students in sustainable fashion.
Collaboration with 21 universities and 200+ organisations in the sustainable development of the industry.
Organization of more than 500 seminars with international designers and craftsmen in five countries.
Changing the paradigm
We have been spreading our message of change regionally and internationally. We aim to inform the public about the power of challenges, but also the potential solutions available to us.
We obtained consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), a very important step that allows us to share our knowledge with them who will shape the industry in the future.
We collaborate with several international agencies (UN) such as UNIDO, UNCTAD, ECLAC, CYTED, WTO, and we are members of the NGO Major Group, Together2030 and several other international collaboration platforms.
