Creating opportunity for indigenous women to generate an income through ethical fashion.
VOZ is an ethical fashion and design company based in Chile and New York with a mission to protect the livelihoods, well-being, and cultural values of rural indigenous women globally. VOZ works to empower artisans through a collaborative business model that showcases, preserves, and supports traditional art forms. The company works in collaboration with politically and economically marginalized women to create beautiful fashion collections and to provide design leadership, training, and opportunity for indigenous women. VOZ has recently scaled to include Peruvians and Indian artisans, and to date, they employ over 60 artisans, have presented eight collections at New York Fashion Week, sell in over 40 stores internationally, and were recently named by Vogue.com as one of the top five sustainable fashion brands.
