Indigenous is committed to fair trade partnerships with culturally diverse artisans. They are proud of their independently certified record of developing apparel manufacturing partnerships that elevate knitting and hand looming artisan cooperatives.  The support of these clothing cooperatives,  located in some of the poorest regions of South America, are making it possible for traditions to continue while families thrive with dignity, living outside of poverty. This means the artisan makes a fair, living wage well above what they might earn working independently. In addition, they partner directly with non-governmental organizations and others that provide training, educational materials, and equipment that otherwise could not be afforded. Indigenous apparel and accessories are made of only all natural fibers, including organic cotton, organic alpaca, marino wool, silk, and other fibers created by nature. Indigenous either utilizes the natural colors of organic cotton and fleece to eliminate the need for dyes or when vivid colors are select only low impact dyes which contain no heavy metals are used. Their commitment to all natural fibers and low-impact dyes stems from the desire to ensure their clothing manufacturing process is environmentally friendly, and never harms water tables and local communities.
