Why HOPE Made in the world


Written by: Lucia Ripoll There is a new conscience arising on the planet today. It relates to our awareness that the world we live in is to be savoured as a whole. We are all part of it and as such the success is for all: in the production line of anything we need there are people, plants, and animals that make part of it and deserve to enjoy their piece of the deal. So why not give them their share with love, treat them all with dignity and appreciation, with social and environmental values that will preserve their inestimable...

Why Peru?


As fast fashion continues to increase its demand, outbreaks take over low-cost nations like Bangladesh, Cambodia and Vietnam, and attention in locating suppliers from South America continues to rise.
