End of the year wrap-up!

As our friends and followers surely know already, this year has been especially exciting for TOP with new people, new projects and, particularly, new products! With even more on the horizon for 2014, we’re winding down toward the holidays and another rainy season here in the Sacred Valley. 

An amazing accomplishment in 2013 - beautiful new styles and color palettes for our accessory products. Soon to be available online!

And that is one of our messages from here on the ground for you all today! The Threads of Peru team will be taking our holiday break beginning Saturday, December 21st. We will be back online as of Monday, January 6th for all correspondence and to continue sharing the latest news!

With these important dates in mind, please keep visiting our website for your seasonal purchases! Don’t forget that in order for your TOP products to arrive before Christmas, we recommend placing orders before December 7th. 

We may not be professional models, but our Fall 2013 photoshoot saw many familiar faces (Project Coordinator, Dana, pictured here) modeling both new and old products. Many more beautiful photographs are featured on our website!

Knowing that heavy rains are fast approaching, we will also not be accepting wholesale orders from November 30th until March 1st because of limited accessibility to the weaving communities. During this time every year, we frequently encounter impassable roads and dangerous driving and hiking conditions, an unfortunately consistent challenge to our work. 

We've been drooling over our first order of Awamaki knitwear and hope that you'll find the work of our friends and fellow weaving enthusiasts as beautiful as we do. Hurry though! We have limited stock for the holiday season and products are going fast!

Thus, we encourage any and all interested customers to place their orders before November 30th! No need to worry though if you’re hoping to continue ordering from our online retail shop during that time. All listed products are available and will be shipped within 3 business days from our Cusco office!
