Supporting Indigenous Female Textile Artisans in Peru

Spiritú is honored to feature handmade keychains in our online Shop. These were made by local female textile artisans from Ollantaytambo and Kuelap, Peru. We are proud to support these artisans through Sustainable Preservation Initiative (SPI). SPI empowers local entrepreneurs (over 85% of whom are women) to alleviate poverty and preserve their past by creating jobs that are dependent on the preservation of cultural heritage sites.

More about Sustainable Preservation Initiative

Many of the world's poorest people live in and around fantastic cultural heritage. SPI creates economic stability by giving communities the tools to leverage their historic sites responsibly. SPI empowers local communities to alleviate poverty and preserve their past by embracing their heritage and sites as economic assets. SPI alleviates poverty by empowering local entrepreneurs (over 85% of whom are women) and creating jobs that are dependent on the preservation of cultural heritage sites.

We sourced our keychains from two of SPI's projects in Peru, in Ollantaytambo and Kuelap.
