About the Designer
We’re proud to feature Emilime for their direct support of women entrepreneurs in Peru. Your purchase of this product directly impacts this artisan community through fair wages and business/skill training. Emilime empowers a network of artisan partners both as creative contributors and as business leaders. The artisan entrepreneurs they work with coordinate groups of knitters in their communities, mostly women, who make each product and use knitting as supplementary income. From swatch development to sample making, and finally production – they work side-by-side with the artisans as the products come to life.
