Support Shipibo Artisans & Fashion Designers
May 7, 2020


Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our activities have come to a standstill, and we are refocusing the way we are working this year and adapting ourselves to these uncertain times.

Each of us are in our homes, with our families, and abiding by the policies of the Peruvian government.

Unable to leave our homes, we are adapting to the digital sphere and are joining virtual initiatives such as The Fashion Revolution Week. Together with the global community of sustainable brands we are sensibilizing consumers to the importance of knowing who made their clothes and what are the stories behind the artisans. 

Supporting small sustainable businesses is not only being aware of the products we consume, it is valuing the work of those who make them. Slow fashion is a form of resistance to capitalist consumption dynamics and is also part of the fight against labor exploitation. Our pieces are unique, designed and produced by ourselves and each garment is made by several hands. The ancestral designs and embroidery that adorn our creations carry a knowledge passed down from generation to generation that make our indigenous fashion a unique and innovative movement. 

This past month we have also been dedicated to our financial sustainability by writing two grants. One for the FRIDA Foundation, which is dedicated to empower young feminists and another, for SACRED FIRE FOUNDATION, which promotes sustainable projects that revitalize indigenous ancestral practices. We have also been contacting future buyers to promote our accessories online. We have hope that we will thrive in these changing times!
