Jenny Krauss artisans live in and near Ayacucho, Peru and are masters in the crafts of weaving and embroidery. The region is poor and remote so finding customers for their wares is difficult. Jenny Krauss collaborates with these artisans to help them maintain a steady income through international sales of their work.
Most of the artisans are women, who usually spend the morning attending to their family farms and the afternoons embroidering. Their babies are often wrapped in a blanket on their back and older children play nearby.
The average cost of living in Ayacucho and its environs is 400-500 Peruvian Nuevo soles (PEN) per month, but these artisans earn on average 1000 PEN/month. Your purchase helps these communities sustain their livelihoods and traditions.
All work is certified by the Fair Trade Federation.
