First Visit to the Awajun

In July 2011 Designer Violeta Villacorta traveled to meet Awajún artisans in the Peruvian Amazon. Violeta was invited by the artisans to explore the possibility of working together to promote and sell their exquisite crafts, as well as co-design collections for a wide market, while remaining authentic to their traditions. A two-day stay in their community marked the beginning of a fruitful partnership.
