Awamaki manages a unique, fashion-forward design initiative, which links women artisans in local cooperatives with international designers and design training. Our design staff and volunteers teach the artisans to create value-added, internationally marketable pieces sold under the Awamaki Lab brand.
Our sales team connects the products with international markets through partner retailers. We provide new sales channels for the cooperatives through our retail store in Ollantaytambo and the Awamaki Lab online store.
Awamaki Lab products merge traditional Andean craft and modern design to create luxury and alpaca accessories. Products include
- women’s clothing
- bags, totes and other accessories
Materials for Awamaki Lab products are 100% natural and are sourced locally and ethically in Peru. We are a proud member of the Fair Trade Federation, a trade association that strengthens and promotes North American organizations fully committed to fair trade.
