Decorate your Christmas tree with style this year knowing full well that those who made these Christmas Baubles are being looked after too.
The baubles, along with other products, are handmade in a craft workshop, set up by Solid International, by women local to the region of Ayacucho in Peru in return for a fair wage. Some of the women who make them live far out into the countryside and are still given the opportunity to join in by making them at home.
Cotswold Outdoor works together with Solid, a private foundation that sets up projects to combat global poverty. Since 2000, Solid, with the support of the business community, has been investing in sustainable community development and in the intensive training and supervision of vulnerable groups – initially with a focus on the Peruvian Ayacucho region, but later also in Kenya and India. This allows the locals to acquire knowledge and take control of their own lives.
A noble and sustainable project – one that Cotswold Outdoor is proud to be a part of. How? It’s simple. Since 2009, every product from the Ayacucho® collection that is sold, generates new funds for their existing projects and for new initiatives.
Ayacucho® clothing and equipment is designed with a focus on responsible, careful sourcing and modern-day technological advancement, giving your adventure the welcome combination of responsibility, comfort and style. This quality outdoor clothing functions to a high standard in challenging environments. Technical outerwear, T-shirts, backpacks or sleeping mats: Ayacucho® helps young and old to venture out into the world with high-quality outfits and material that lasts for years.
