Our wholesaler, Fair Anita was born out of Peru, in partnership with Anita (who is now one of their beloved artisan partners!). These cooperatives have been prioritizing equity and economic opportunity for marginalized makers from the beginning. The cooperative is housed in an extension of their leaders’, Maritza, home. This workshop is fondly referred to as the “little workshop, with a big heart.” Maritza taught herself how to make jewelry and now works with 11 other women who are able to work in this workshop or at home. The other cooperative they partner with is located just outside the capital city, Lima. They make *every* little piece by hand: right down to the tiny little earring backs. They're exceptional craftspeople, for sure!
