HOW WE WORK
Upon receiving orders from our customers, we acquired alpaca wool according to the requirements which are then sent to our mothers leaders. These leaders are already trained by us and divide the work between them by the skills each one have. Once they finish the product, the leader the mother collects the production, checks the quality and sends to our main headquarter in Lima. Here we have a second control quality, each garment is labeled and sterilized and steamed at very high temperatures, then ventilated to dry.
Finally, a second label with indications, packaging for shipping to our customers.
What makes us successful working model is and horizontal organization where all employees, leaders and heads have direct communications, and all information is shared within the whole MIA workers.
FROM BEGINING UNTIL TODAY
Currently, the vast majority are mothers with hand weaving techniques, stick, others use crochet, embroidery, loom and combinations of these. We have formed groups in Lima and at the Andes were we deliver our wools and we get back the knitted products. We are more than 300 hundred working together, some not weaving but doing all the office and managing jobs. Learn more at www.facebook.com/MIAPERU
