As of September, 2021 ELEVEN SIX is launching a "GIVE-BACK" initiative where a percentage of our online sales between the peak selling period of September-February will be donated back to our Peruvian artisan-makers to support their businesses, workshop development, educational and welfare needs.
With the help of our Peru partners we are piloting the initiative with a few key workshops then plan to grow the initiative wider. We have conducted a detailed survey to discuss the needs and challenges that the workshops face. Covid-19 undoubtedly had and still has a huge impact on their businesses. We plan to make donations quarterly and will strategize with my partners at each donation period to decipher the best cause of contributing action based on current needs. There are many small immediate needs that can make a big impact, for example: new light bulbs or new reading glasses for close up work can help significantly. As we grow the program we can increase the impact that the contributions can make and achieve larger goals such as new machinery or contribute to larger educational program’s etc.
After each donation period we will be able to report back to our customers the results that have been achieved from the growing donations.
Thank you in advance for supporting the skilled, Peruvian artisan-markers we work with and that make ELEVEN SIX knitwear collections possible.
