Inca Pallay is a non-for-profit association, created to help local indigenous weavers living in areas of extreme rural poverty. Comprising of over 200 weavers and artisans from the ethnic regions of Jalq'a and Yampara (Tarabuco), Inca Pallay works to preserve their local culture, while providing the chance for its members to earn vital additional income. Operating on the principles of Fair Trade, Inca Pallay pays a fixed and fair price for its high quality products, which is often substantially higher than those paid by its local competitors. Thus the production and commercialisation of their textiles allows the association's members and artisans to both better the economic condition of their daily lives, and share their cultural identity through their magnificent textiles.
