    Beautiful piece. You can really see the care, skill, and tradition in this scarf. I love that on Mosqoy's website I can learn about the weaver who crafted this scarf, learn about the symbols woven into the piece, and about where the proceeds from my purchase are going. Overall, an ethical, fascinating, and stunning buy.

    This is the 3rd purchase I made from this store. I love the quality and unique items that this store sells. It took a bit of time for the camera strap to arrive, but I received a message as to why there would be a delay. I wasn't upset because I didn't need the strap immediately. The strap arrived safely to the US and I love it. I hope to purchase more items in the future.

    I am in the process of re-decorating my bedroom. I wanted something colorful and different in my room. I love pom poms and tassels. I found these curtain holders for my curtains. The pom poms are vibrant in color and I appreciate the craftsmanship of them. I purchased these curtain ties and a Yoga bag from this shop. I loved both items and they arrived quickly to the US.

    I love this seller's shop and the gorgeous handcrafted items they sell. This is my first purchase from this shop and ordering from Peru. I was a bit concerned that my items would take a long time to arrive to the USA, but they didn't. I wanted a simple, handcrafted bag for my yoga mat. The quality and craftsmanship of the bag are beautiful. I ordered more items from this shop and will leave a review on them. I believe I will order more items from this shop.

On Etsy since 2016

Revitalizing Quechua culture. Empowering Quechua women.

Mosqoy, meaning “dream" in Quechua, is a charitable non-profit organization that started in 2006 with the goal of empowering Indigenous communities in the Peruvian Andes to overcome adversities relating to unsustainable tourism and development. We run two social enterprises and one charitable program to achieve this goal:

1) The Mosqoy Youth Program, which provides promising Quechua youth with opportunities for post-secondary education so that they can compete in their communities' new job sectors and become positive community leaders in the future.

2) Mosqoy Peruvian Textiles, which supports women weavers to ensure that Quechua textiles embedded with generations of cultural knowledge can continue to thrive and adapt.

3) Mosqoy Field School, which provides travellers and students opportunities to cultivate awareness so that consumer relationships in our increasingly connected world can manifest as positive and fair.
