To bring the culture of Peru into the households and into the streets of the United States, while lifting a culture out of poverty. That is the ultimate goal.
What is fair trade?
Fair trade is a movement whose goal is to help producers in developing countries to get a fair price for their products so as to reduce poverty, provide for the ethical treatment of workers and farmers, and promote environmentally sustainable practices.
We at Piel Canela Peru value the lives that work hard, day in and day out, to create beautiful, handcrafted goods that we can wear and use. That is why we believe it is our duty to only deal with fair trade, making sure no stitch goes under appreciated.
We ensure that we only deal directly with the artisans themselves, making sure that they are provided just compensation for their countless hours of handcrafting.
Every item seen on this site has been entirely handcrafted in various regions of Peru. Done mostly by mothers in order to help support their families, the use of natural dyes and natural fibers dates back thousands of years in the cultural history of the country.
