Jenny Krauss Hand Embroidered Fair Trade Peruvian Bucket Bags

Jenny Krauss Hand Embroidered Fair Trade Peruvian Bucket Bags

It started on a trip to Peru in 2008 where Jenny Krauss fell in love with the traditional embroidery from a region called Ayacucho. Today her business now employs 1600 artisans who make beautiful products. Given that they live in remote areas without other options for work, this project has had a huge impact on their lives. The simple act of selling something they made with their hands gives them a sense of pride and accomplishment; something they had never experienced.

All of the products are made according to fair trade guidelines. They earn a living wage, have a safe working environment and are not subject to workplace pollutants or toxins. There is no child labor. Most of the artisans are women who work at home with their children playing nearby. Some of their husbands are now learning to embroider as well.
