    Edith Cruz: A Woman Who Knits

    Edith Cruz: A Knitter Empowered by Fair Trade

    In her rural village overlooking Lake Titicaca, near Puno, Peru, Edith Cruz grew up watching her mom knit scarves, sweaters, and gloves to sell. Her nine-year-old sister Veronica and most of her girl friends knitted their own dolls to play with, but Edith wasn’t interested at the time. Instead, she tried knitting in high school at age 14, which to her felt old--and today, she is glad she did!

    In 2009, the Lucuma Designs team met with Edith’s family and began working together soon after. Today she is finishing college and managing a group of knitters. Read more.
