OUR ARTISAN COMMUNITY

The Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco

The Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco (CTTC) is a non-profit organization that works to preserve the ancient textile traditions of Peru, while improving their weavers’ quality of life through workshops, promotion and sales of their textile art. It is comprised of ten different weaving associations located in the Cusco region.

Tribe West’s elegant Cusco Pitumarca pattern was designed by our artisan partners at CTTC specifically for our mats. Pitumarca is located 65 miles south of the city of Cusco and is where approximately 50 adult weavers and 25 children gather in its weaving center once a week to weave, knit and braid using techniques that are thousands of years old and can be directly traced to pre-Columbian cultures.

With a 100% natural rubber base, Cusco Pitumarca collection is available with either a Portuguese cork or polyester top. A portion of every Cusco Pitumarca sale goes directly back to the artisans of CTTC.

Shanga

Located at the Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, Shanga is a social enterprise that employs people with disabilities to create unique, high-quality, handmade jewelry, glassware and homeware using recycled materials. These products are sold in Tanzania and all over the world, with profits being reinvested back into development of new products and further employment of disabled people.

Meaning “bead” in Swahili, the philosophy of Shanga is “Be kind and recycle.” We designed the mesmerizing Arusha Shanga collection with our artisan partners at Shanga, finding inspiration in one of their carpets.

With a 100% natural rubber base, Arusha Shanga is available with either a Portuguese cork or polyester top. A portion of every Arusha Shanga sale goes directly back to the artisans of Shanga.
