Indigenous is committed to fair trade partnerships with culturally diverse artisans. They know from experiencing communities around the world that knitting clothes in many cultures is a time-honored tradition. The knitting practices have significant cultural meaning worthy of livable financial rewards. Indigenous is proud of its independently certified record of developing apparel manufacturing partnerships that elevate knitting and hand looming artisan cooperatives. Their support of these clothing cooperatives, located in some of the poorest regions of South America, is making it possible for traditions to continue while families thrive with dignity, living outside of poverty.
All Indigenous apparel and accessories are made of only all natural fibers, including organic cotton, organic alpaca, marino wool, silk, and other fibers created by nature. Their commitment to all natural fibers and low-impact dyes stems from the desire to ensure our clothing manufacturing process is environmentally friendly, and never harms water tables and local communities.
