Pachamama Supplier Spotlight

Posted by Lindsay Ritchie on

We've got some great winter warmers for you lovely folks today! Atop the South American Andean Mountains are some amazing people who live their lives in the bitter cold. These people have an amazing resilience due in part to their clothing. Our Supplier Spotlight this week is a great company who makes clothes from the same materials. Today we look at Pachamama!

Pachamama is the ultimate in naturally sourced, handcrafted and sustainable quality clothing. The products are handmade on a relatively small scale it is highly unlikely you will meet someone wearing the same thing. While the designs are constantly changing, the underlying style remains the same - a use of natural materials, colour and symbol.

Pachamama itself roughly translates to “Earth Mother” from Quechua the ancient language of the Incas. They began in 1996 and have been trading in handmade wool and cotton products from Nepal as well as other goods.

As any good company should, Pachamama is hugely invested in fair trade and charitable practices. They promote traditional weaving and knitting techniques, provide orders all year round and develop the use of natural materials and dyes to keep the impact on both local and wider environment to a minimum while using recycled packaging as much as possible!

Their workers in Nepal are also very well looked after! The folks at Pachamama regularly visit to make sure all their ethical standards are held up by those employees who are also paid above the national average and all treated fairly with the respect they’re due! Pachamama has also lent its support to charities such as the WWF-UK and Net4Kids.
