For years, long-time friends and manufacturing partners throughout Peru have been inviting us to come visit and soak up inspiration from their country’s bustling urban centers and sprawling rural landscapes. I have been through South America a handful of times, but have spent most of my time only in tourist areas. This trip gave me a chance to take in a diverse range of experiences and really appreciate a culture characterized by incredible work ethic, warm people, and captivating natural beauty.
After spending five days in Peru, I am so blown away by their hard-working culture. Whether I was visiting our manufacturing partner’s Peruvian factory in Lima, shopping in the streets, eating incredible food, or surfing the nearby coast, what impressed me most was the people. The people I crossed paths with were driven by an innovative spirit and it was so inspiring, I can't wait for my next visit and we are so excited to share the following photostory from my recent visit.
