Empowering Female Artisans
We partnered with Marilu and her company for this collaboration. Marilu started her manufacturing business in 2014 with the mission to help artisan women grow up and to give them the power to change their future. Although the company is based in Lima, Marilu works with artisan groups throughout vulnerable regions of Peru to manufacture fashion accessories for global brands. Through these partnerships, Marilu's company can provide steady work for artisan women through utilizing traditional artisanal manufacturing techniques.
