Threads of Peru Blog

Our new Website!

With high season going into full swing here in Cusco, it seems the excitement won’t stop and we’re working hard to make sure it doesn’t. Today I’m signing on to extend to all of our friends and supporters an invitation to join us in celebrating the launch of the new Threads of Peru website! With special thanks to our talented co-founder and web designer, Angie Hodder, in Halifax, Canada, I’d like to highlight some of the exciting features and information resources now available to you all in one beautiful online location.  

Since our humble beginnings in 2009, we have maintained online stores on Ebay and Eco Market that have introduced us to customers across the world. Now we are able to invite our global following to come together to enjoy the ease of shopping right on our site from your computer, mobile device or smartphone! Browse our wide variety of traditional Peruvian textiles - from undyed alpaca scarves and shawls to naturally dyed table runners and handbags - while reading about the communities and weavers that make these exquisite products. Visit often to keep up to date on new merchandise and sales, for example our 100% natural alpaca Paso Poncho, now available at a temptingly marked down price! Shipping is included in all of our product prices.

This year we are also proud to announce the first printing of our 2013-2014 Wholesale Catalog, featured online. Our wholesale collection is the culmination of many years of hard work and ingenuity, on behalf of the women from Rumira Sandomayo, Chaullaqocha and ourselves, and showcases the inspiring creativity of Andean weavers. If only one beautifully hand-woven textile just isn’t enough, please visit our Wholesale page to learn more or contact us to receive a copy of your own. And although I’m certain that temptation is already running high, we also offer custom ordering for those adventurous parties interested in adding their own personal touch to this Peruvian tradition!

  We have also included and expanded upon the information on our previous site, providing you with tons of interesting details about our project, Andean culture and the start to finish of the weaving process. And having mentioned the beginning of the high season, I’ll draw the interest of you travelers and travel enthusiasts toward the Get Involved page. Here you’ll read about the volunteer opportunities we offer and trekking experiences, like natural dyeing workshops, that we coordinate with our partner Apus Peru. Ever dreamt of contributing to sustainable development in Latin America? Visit our new site and learn how to make it happen! 

And although it’s hard to believe, we’ve saved the best for last.
