FROM THE ANDES TO THE SIERRAS
Cultural Threads is a collection of one-of-a kind essentials, handmade by experienced Peruvian artisans. All our products embody the love and energy rooted within the Peruvian culture. We provide an opportunity for our artisans to earn an income that helps support their families and communities, all while continuing to live a traditional lifestyle.
All of the fiber to make our knitwear is ethically sourced directly from the Andes. Our artisans raise the alpaca, sheer their wool, spin the yarn and knit our products.
We strive to bring as much aid as we can to our artisans and the community around them. Medical needs, education, awareness, basic living necessities to make life above 13,000ft. more comfortable. We are grateful for the donations from family and friends, along with companies such as Black Diamond, Palmer’s and Tahoe Trail Bars. Items we have brought include; tooth brushes, toothpaste, lotion, sunscreen, medical supplies, warm kids clothes, rechargeable headlamps, etc. The people of the Andes are in need of outside help. We are always looking for more collaborations to bring further aid.
