Sustainability - Community
We are proud of our ‘Tracing Maps’ concept where we connect our artisans work to the rest of the world.
For every product made, especially our handwoven rugs, there are many different artisans involved. We like to see it as weaving a map that traces them all together in order to achieve these final wares. This usually starts from the sheep wool, then to the hand-spinning, preparing the loom, weaving and then the finishing touches.
We are also planning our future social impact work. In addition to providing honourable work for our artisans, we endeavour to support them in other ways that will help their communities. We’re looking into joining forces with local Argentinean business that integrate well being, education, etc.
A product we are very proud of is our Litoral Hammocks. Here, we’ve partnered with Incausa to offer a truly unique product - the Xingu Hammock. It’s the first time we've explored a product of this nature and we are proud to have committed to this project pro-bono, meaning that after shipping and taxes, ALL profits go directly to the Amari Woman in Brazil.
We are working on a new idea where our clients have the option to write a letter to our weavers if they want to thank them personally for their beautiful work. By doing this, we are not only empowering them as artisans, but adding a real human connection to the transaction.
And in Byron, Australia, we try to participate in many local events of our small creative community, and are looking towards participating more in fundraisers, charity events and local projects in and around Byron.
