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.
Deep in the heart of the Andes Mountains is the region of Ayacucho. A traditional farming community, many families here live below the poverty line. However, despite facing daily hardship, the people of Ayacucho embrace whatever the world can throw at them. It was from this spirit of determination that the Ayacucho range was born.
Ayacucho clothing is inspired by the people of the region, and designed with a focus on responsible sourcing and technological advancement. Combining comfort and style, Ayacucho clothing is ideally suited to any environment- whether you’re tackling the trek to work or climbing Snowdon.
