The beautiful original creations of the Awajun & Ashaninka artisans and ORG by vio designs were featured at Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Fall 2014-15 Paris Show via NGO Cool Earth. Jewelry available at www.orgbyvio.com – Supporting Amazon artisans, protecting the rainforest.
This Vivienne Westwood collection is inspired both by the Ashaninka and the Awajun people. It also features some of the designs created by designer Violeta Villacorta for ORG by vio, which works in partnership with Awajun artisans who have made the jewelry worn in Vivienne Westwood fashion show featured here. ORG by vio also sells the Cushma tunics – worn by Vivienne Westwood and her husband Andreas at the end – via partner organization Ecotribal, who directly works with the Ashaninka. We are delighted Vivienne Westwood has featured the Awajun & Ashaninka culture and wears!!
Thank you, for featuring the Amazon artisans’ work, Vivienne Westwood!

The AMARNO artisans are spearheading a project to install satellite internet to help their community’s sustainable future by creating an alternative to the sale of rainforest trees.
