Mia Peru is a fair trade certified brand led by women, that began as a team of 12 mothers in 2007. Each ethically made garment is woven or knit by hand in Peru.
As our brand stands we do have men in our organization as well, some doing weaving and knitting. The majority of members are women who are neighbors of their different communities, knitting from their safe homes while looking after their kids or during their free time. Our MIA knitters are represented by women leaders chosen by themselves. These leaders are in charge of coordinating with our head offices in the highlands and Lima Hub office. Our knitters are very skillful thanks to our continuous workshops acquiring high standards to produce our collections.
Our Mission: we work tirelessly to satisfy the needs our of customers. Who appreciate pure fibers, understand the value of “handmade,” and are looking for high quality, ecologically-friendly products that do not harm the environment. Our entire production process is based on these values, as well as the aim of promoting social inclusion.
Our Vision: to produce beautifully-designed products that also have the added value of Fair Trade. To create more groups of mothers that are able to work from home, while providing a better standard of living for their entire family.
