Threads of Peru Blog
You might be feeling that tiny nip in the are indicating the arrival of the fall season. It’s a good time to consider purchasing one of Threads of Peru’s elegant, handmade, natural fiber ponchos. Originally a garment worn by men, ponchos were first created and worn in the Andean regions. Europeans arrived in South America in the 17th century, and adapted ponchos to their own specifications, including some highly elaborate designs. Today, ponchos continue to be worn in the high Andes, with each village having its own designs and design elements that carry regional significance.
With cooler weather just around the corner, you already know that our luxuriously soft, traditionally handcrafted alpaca items make wonderful additions to your autumn and winter wardrobe.
Are you aware that every one of your purchase decisions has an impact on people, nature, and planet: one that may be hard to fathom from where you are sitting? If you were to trace any product from beginning to end, you could create a map showing the people, animals, plants, and environment that were all changed in some small part because of the production of that item and your subsequent purchase of it.
You, yes You, have a significant impact on our world!
