OUR

VALUES

Aula Artesana is driven by principles of sustainability, inclusivity, transparency and social good. We work to make sure that these values are reflected throughout our business, guiding our approach to relationships with our employees, partners, guests and planet. We are constantly reassessing ourselves and our practices and are always open to feedback, questions and suggestions.

Artisan Partners

  • A retail platform for artisans who want to sell their handmade, high-quality products and teach others about their process  

  • Fair-market compensation for the time, skill and creativity that goes into making each product

  • We never negotiate prices, except when we feel that a proposed amount is too low

  • Creative freedom - we do not interfere with the design process or aesthetic choices of our partners, though from time to time we request particular colors or sizes

  • Relationships built on mutual respect, open dialogue and participation

  • We visit our partners regularly to maintain open communication and request that meetings be translated into the local Indigenous language, ensuring that everyone can understand and participate
     

Guests

  • Open and honest communication with our guests regarding all of our products and workshops

  • Commitment to providing the highest quality, unique, handcrafted products made in Peru

  • Carefully designed itineraries based on the interests and passions of our guests
