This embroidered belt is handmade by women's cooperatives in rural areas of Peru. All of the work is done fairly and the artisans are paid a living wage. Most of the artisans sew in their homes or at a communal studio workshop.
Each belt is a one-of-a-kind work of beautiful craftsmanship using a contemporary take on traditional Andean techniques.

What is Fair Trade?
Fair Trade is a market based approach to solving social, economic and environmental injustice. Under Fair Trade standards, producers in developing countries are afforded economic opportunities to better their living conditions and have more control over their own lives. At the same time, environmental sustainability is given high priority as a key element in growth for current and future generations. Learn more about Fair Trade >
