ALQO WASI is a company which currently works with workshops composed by women from the regions of Puno and Lima. These women with low resources, experts in the technique of weaving in hand looms, hand knitting and hand embroidered, come from vulnerable and marginal zones.
Through constant training, these women develop their skills in order to become more productive and competitive in the labor market. In this sense, ALQO WASI gives them the opportunity to develop their creative capabilities through the elaboration of exclusive pet and human products making these women feel more confident in themselves and most important: revaluing the position of women and the important role they carry for the progress of their homes and community.
At Alqo Wasi we are committed to the environment by using sustainable, eco friendly resources as the alpaca and Peruvian cotton. All raw materials come from the Andean regions of Peru, emphasizing our responsibility to prevent the damage of nature.
