What does Pach’inti mean ?
It is a combination of both words « Pachama » meaning « mother earth » and « inti » which is the sun.
These words are present in the Quechua and Aymara languages, both spoken in a geographical zone which covers Bolivia, Peru and Chile.
This combination of words evokes respect for the Earth and natural elements, necessary for life.
A fair trade
Pach’inti was born in Bolivia fifteen years ago with the idea of developing a fair and environment friendly trade with Bolivian craftsmen as well as getting culturally richer thanks to this culture and its traditional arts.
The humain being remains at the heart of our approach so we produce our range of clothes and accessories in a traditional way without any digital machines, thanks to the eye and the agility of these precious hands.
Thanks to this process, our trade is directly profitable to the local economy as it creates a remuneration with dignity.
Respect for the environment
The alpaca as well as the lama have a low environmental impact. Indeed the alcapa spends its whole life grazing freely in its natural habitat with self-reliant access to food and water.
We use non-chemical dyes.
Pach’inti’s carbon footprint is very low, it annually represents two people’s trip to South America with their luggage.
