Where does your beautiful shrug come from?
When I set out to find someone to help me make my shrugs I looked all over the planet!
Seriously, I spoke to folks in China, Mongolia, India, Europe, Canada and America.
After months and months of searching I found Peru.
# 1: Peru loves their Alpacas!
They domesticated these animals thousands of years ago. They are loved and revered in Peru and even have blessing ceremonies every year to appreciate and ask for an abundance of alapacs for the coming year! How awesome is that!?
# 2: Made with love and dignity!
Your shrug is hand knit by women in Peru. The women that hand knit your shrug get to work from the comfort of their home (very rare in the fashion world) and are paid fairly for their time and skill!
The shrug you own now not only is designed with your comfort and style in mind but it is also made well from a country that cares.
