Pachamama began in 1990 the brand started trading goods from the Andean Mountains of South America, the inspiration for their name which translates as "Earth Mother" from Quechua the ancient language of the Incas. Since 1996 they have also been trading in handmade wool and cotton products from Nepal.
Since those early days Pachamama has developed strong and sustainable relationships with suppliers based on mutual respect for all links in the chain of production - from sourcing and collecting raw materials to designing and marketing finished products. Thye remain loyal to their original philosophy and have been working with some of the same producers for 20 years - ensuring continuous and solid economic and social growth for a large number of people.
At a time when the high streets of most towns and cities are populated by the same chain stores, selling the same mass produced clothes, it is Pachamama's aim to help customers express their individuality by offering something a little different.
At Pachamama very little time passes without us working on new designs, and because their products are handmade on a relatively small scale it is highly unlikely you will meet someone wearing the same thing. While the designs are constantly changing, the underlying style remains the same - a use of natural materials, colour and symbol.
Here at Anna Davies, Betws y Coed, North Wales, there is a wide range to choose from! At one end of the scale you will find simple classics that highlight the natural beauty of the material - sometimes with a little Pachamama twist. At the other end of the scale you will find complex patterns that show off the skill of their extraordinary knitters.
What all of thier products have in common is that they are made with great deal of patience, care and love.
