Hometown: Rumira, Peru
Martha grew up in the community of Rumira, and was a member artisan in one of the cooperatives that we work with for spinning and knitting. She first joined Awamaki about four years ago after hearing about the job opening from two other women who worked directly with us for custom orders. She had previously been working with Awamaki as a knitter and spinner through the Rumira cooperative but is now our Production Coordinator. Martha and her family still live in Rumira, a place that she describes as peaceful and where she can tend to her plants. She is an avid plant-lover and loves to grow flowers in her home.
