As all of you avid Threads of Peru followers well know, this week we have been busy bees down here in Cusco for our sales week on ChatBasket.com. Meeting with the weavers from Rumira Sandormayo and Chaullaqocha, we have been reporting online live from Ollantaytambo to answer questions and comments from our customers and interested parties from around the world. It has certainly been exciting and we’re looking forward to these next two days that our products will be featured on this innovative shopping website.
And today we have even more exciting news – a special guest in our chatroom this afternoon! James Roberts, representative of Indigenous clothing in Santa Rosa, California, will be joining us online to chat about many important topics that are central to our and their mission – organic clothing, fair trade and eco-friendly, low impact production.
Indigenous Clothing began much as we did, but slightly before our time – with founders Scott Leonard and Matt Reynolds making an unforgettable trip to South America in 1993. After discovering for themselves the uniqueness and timeless beauty of the knitting and weaving traditions, they decided to pioneer a business model that supports the artisans of their clothing and the environment. It’s an inspirational story that we’re looking forward to hearing more about today – we hope that you will also join us to hear their comments and questions.
