We started with PamPeana over 10 years ago promoting leather mask from an artist from Argentina for about 4 years. We then partnered with the Wichi community in Northern Argentina for the next 5 years. In 2006, we met two young glass artists from Ecuador who we still working with. In 2008, we got involved with an organization helping in the promotion of tagua products and since 2010, we created the Green Living Tree Collection that focused on products originated from a tree. Today, we have two collections we have invested time, energy, and creativity: PamPeana Glass Art & Green Living Tree.
PamPeana Glass Art and Green Living Tree supports Fair Trade standards for labor, environmentalism and social policy relating to production and distribution of Fair Trade goods as well as USA made products. Our focus is to work with individuals of lower education and economic resources providing opportunities that allow them to have a more stable environment and help them move from a position of vulnerability to one of security and economic self-sufficiency. PamPeana aims to empower these individuals by encouraging them to become stakeholders in their own organizations and to actively play a wider role in the design and development of handcrafted products. PamPeana works with recycled and renewable materials that allow us to have little or no impact on the environment.
In the spirit of fairness, we strive to create a balance between the number of products created in Ecuador and those made within the USA. As a result of that, we have a few products that are made in the USA. PamPeana operations impact the lives of over 70 families outside the USA and over 20 families within the USA.
When you purchase a product promoted by PamPeana, you become an ambassador of Fair Trade principles, supporting equality and sustainability as well as helping to preserve our environment. Small steps in the right direction take us further on our journey to a better world for everyone.
On behalf of our family, our USA team, and all of our Artisans, I would like to thank you for your business and support, but most importantly for your partnership and friendship!
Thanks for choosing to partner with us!
