Thank you to our volunteer models and photographer!

Many thanks to Lynn Dao and husband Drew for volunteering their time in April to respectively photograph and model Threads of Peru weavings. Threads of Peru co-founder Ariana Svenson saw Lynn’s professional website (based in Phoenix Arizona) and blog and after they booked a trek with Apus Peru asked them if they would like to give up a day of their holiday to help with Threads of Peru.

We are delighted they did!!! A few of our favorite photos are posted here and here. You can also check out Lynn’s blog.

Many of the shots that you see on our ebay store were taken by Lynn. And we also just added all new products on our Ethical Community online store!

Also special thanks to Katy Shorthouse (Lonely Planet Peru Contributing Author) for coordinating the day and models Claire (from The Muse), Fiona (from Tika Soaps) and Fredy (from Apus Peru). If you are a professional photographer or professional model, perhaps you would like to volunteer with Threads of Peru for a day or two… see ToP´s volunteer positions.
