Only Ayacucho products are made in the Ayacucho region, but not every Ayacucho product comes from Peru.
We prefer to focus more on a truly sustainable story: acquiring financing that can be invested in local initiatives so that our engine for change continues to run and so that locals are employed with their own local options and raw materials. We do this through our partner, Solid.
The story behind the Ayacucho collection and Solid:
- Part of the proceeds from every (!) Ayacucho product sold go straight to Solid, our partner in the Ayacucho story. Solid supports several sustainable social development projects – not just in Ayacucho (Peru) where it all began for us, but in India and Kenya now as well.
- ‘Learning by doing’ is the motto for all these projects: we teach the locals how to stand on their own two feet and dig in their heels by doing just those things. They will eventually become self-supporting this way. You can read more about this project here.
- When manufacturing the Ayacucho collection, our buyers make sure that everything is done in accordance with the BSCI Code, with guarantees for proper working conditions.
- Would you like to experience the story behind the Ayacucho collection up close and personal? Then we invite you to take part in the selection procedure for our annual cultural immersion trips to the Solid projects. We suggest you check our newsletters and social media regularly for more info.
