Traditional patterns from the Sacred Valley of the Incas
Our canvas are woven in Peru, where each village has its own pattern. The patterns we have chosen come from villages around Chinchero, Chivay and Titicaca.
Our sneakers are made by skilled artisans in Peru. They are paid between 2 and 3 times the Peruvian minimum wage and don't work more than 44 hours per week, less than the legal working hours in Peru.
We are in collaboration with the NGO Los Chicos de Cusco that supports four schools in poor villages around Cusco. For each pair of sneakers we sell, we donate one euro. This represents the cost to send one pupil to school for a day, including the teacher's salary, school supplies and their uniform. It represents between 15 and 20% of our benefits.
