Since 2008 the collections of Bawi Koszednar were produced in Peru. Therefore the designer flys to Cusco once a year in the context of a social project to realise her newest ideas together with deaf peruvian dressmakers. Bawi: „It’s really important for these women to work here because it makes them independent from their husbands and besides we have a lot of fun together.“ .

According to the conventions of the UN International Labor Organization (ILO) the women are guaranteed social equality, solid working conditions and fair salaries.
The whole Projekt is supported by the ADA (Austrian Development Association).
Textile production and the cultivation especially of organic cotton has a long tradition in Peru, that’s why I busied myself among other things with this issue for our project.
Another reason was that I wanted you to think about working conditions in the textile production sector when you go shopping next time. Do you really have a clear conscience?
