Founded in 2001, Sanyork is a social business that is a member of the Fair Trade Federation. By working with artisans in Peru, they sell a variety of products including accessories, stone carvings, jewelry, musical instruments, weaving, apparel, metal works, pottery, gourds and alpaca fur rugs.

Sanyork employs over 60 full-time artisans in safe working conditions. Supporting children is also an important component of the business model, which they do by providing clothing, food and school supplies.

“Our goal is to alleviate poverty and provide well remunerated work among struggling artisans in our community of San Juan de Lurigancho, a heavily populated and poor district of Lima-Peru,” write Sanyork on their website. “We’ve organized our Lima operation to accept and train young artisans through mentorships and to train single unemployed women with children in hand crafts.”
