Jenny Krauss is a designer who, in 2008, started working with artisans in Peru to produce a line of hand embroidered accessories for women and home. Her eponymous company now employs over 1500 weavers and embroiderers, and the line is sold in stores around the world. All work is done according to fair trade guidelines, so workers are paid a living wage and have a safe working environment. The line is designed in NYC with an eye on mixing contemporary trends with traditional Peruvian techniques. Despite being entirely handmade, new products are introduced monthly to keep customers attuned to the brand in a fast fashion world.
