Munay T’ikariy Makes their First Sale!

From October to December of last year, DESEA Peru worked with the women’s association Munay T’ikariy on a pilot textile project as part of their economic development initiatives. The women learned each step of textile production including processing raw materials, weaving techniques, fabrication, quality control, marketing, and sales. The project culminated in their participation in Cusco’s annual Santurantikuy holiday fair, where two members sold their first set of scarves and bracelets for the association! At DESEA, we are so proud to see the progress of these women and are excited to expand the project in 2018. Please send us a note if you are interested in purchasing these beautiful hand-woven products!
