At Mandua we have a mission: honouring the traditional Andean culture and traditions, while bringing quality products adjusted to the western taste. It took us a long time until we found the right suppliers and weavers, which guarantee the highest quality standards and keep loyal to the traditional methods to make our knitwear.
The women involved in our production have an ethical empowered and fair way of living, being able to provide for their own families. Fair trade is one of our main concerns in the process.
In the Andean communities there is something they grow up with. Every member of the community is trustworthy to others, they support each other, appreciate each other… The traditional values make it so that mothers and fathers teach their children all they know about producing their fabrics and making the most of the amazing alpaca wool.
They worship the Pachamama (Mother Earth) for its resources and take good care of their animals, as they basically belong to their families. There is so much to learn from our ancestors and the communities which have make it through the pressure of times to keep all those societies based on love and values. Mandua helps them pay for the land to acquire a sustainable way of earning their living, while keeping loyal to their amazing lifestyle. Be part of this great community that reaches so many people! From the far distanced Andean region straight to your home.
