Pachamama has been fairly trading with the people of the Andean Mountains of South America since 1990 and trading handmade wool and cotton products from Nepal since 1996. Their focus on mutual respect at every stage of the supply chain has led them to develop strong and sustainable relationships, working with the same suppliers for over 20 years.
All Pachamama goods have the fair trade label on them, the wool is sourced sustainably and all the workers are paid a fair wage. All products are hand knitted on a small-scale and not mass produced making each item unique and full of soul. All take time, patience and care to make and the result is strikingly beautiful woollen accessories.
Most of the Pachamama range is made with home-based workers who supplement their farming incomes and can knit the items around their family and work commitments. All of them are paid way above the local standards, so you know that when you are buying a unique handmade Pachamama woollen item, you are helping to support some of the poorest communities in the world.
Another great benefit is that Pachamama donates at least 10% of the profit on all sales to Net4Kids, an international charity working in Nepal, whose mission is to give underprivileged children a better future through sustainable help.
