Indigenous is committed to fair trade partnerships with culturally diverse artisans. We know from experiencing communities around the world that knitting clothes in many cultures is a time-honored tradition. The knitting practices have significant cultural meaning worthy of livable financial rewards. Indigenous is proud of its independently certified record of developing apparel manufacturing partnerships that elevate knitting and hand looming artisan cooperatives. Our support of these clothing cooperatives, located in some of the poorest regions of South America, are making it possible for traditions to continue while families thrive with dignity, living outside of poverty.
All Indigenous apparel and accessories are made of only all natural fibers, including organic cotton, organic alpaca, marino wool, silk, and other fibers created by nature. Conventional cotton is one of the most pesticide-dependent crops, while cotton used by Indigenous to produce beautiful fashion is free of all pesticides. The wool and alpaca used in also raised in a natural manner.
Indigenous either utilizes the natural colors of organic cotton and fleece to eliminate the need for dyes or when vivid colors are select only low impact dyes which contain no heavy metals are used. All dyes used to produce Indigenous clothes are Azo - dioxazine compound free. Indigenous also utilizes a qualified system for waste water filtration.
