With Open Hands, Here We Are

Do you ever walk into a clothing store and wonder where your new blouse really came from? The tag may usually say from China, but who was the person creating it and ensuring every stitch and seam met up perfectly for you to wear?

At Our Hands for Hope, we’re on a mission – A mission for fashion, a mission for prosperity, and a mission for hope. We’re not just about the knits, but the people behind them. We believe in the power of helping others and how far that power can take us.

For the past three years, we’ve been working with some wonderful women in Peru to showcase their skill in alpaca knitwear, bringing trendy pieces to you and hope to them. These women are mothers, caretakers, and harbor a great skill. We’ve stepping in to create a sustainable, trendy product line that showcases their incredible talents and introduces them to the United States market, providing them and their families with opportunities not easily accessible outside of Western outlets.

Our home originated in the Napa Valley, but we’ve been expanding. We are now in California, Texas, and Colorado, and are looking to spread hope to new markets, telling our story to encourage women not only in Peru but the rest of the world.

So, here we are: Our Hands for Hope. We are diving into the fashion world with a purpose.  This blog is our place to show you our travels, thoughts, and trends and to inspire you to lend a hand to the hopeful.
