Fair trade: Means the artisans are not
exploited by conventional traders, and their traditional skills
are being kept.
Alpaca clothing is made from organic wool. It is environmentally
friendly, with no pesticides, no fertilizers or chemicals being
used, only the purest native materials of Peru.
By purchasing a Fair Trade garment, you are not only helping to
provide 4,000 members families with a better income for their traditional
skills, crafts, education opportunities and health care. You are
also contributing to save coloured Alpacas from extinction!
