Munay Rumi

Jicamarca, Lima, Peru

Munay Rumi is a small artisan group of jewelry makers based in the outskirts of Lima, Peru. They are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards and have shown great commitment to upholding Fair Trade principles. They moved to Lima from Cuzco in the early 1990s to find more opportunities and still speak Quechua with each other and in their homes. In Quechua, Munay Rumi means “pretty stone.” After years of monotonous work in a jewelry factory, working 80-hour weeks for only $115 a month, members of the group decided to leave to form their own business. They heard about this Fair Trade project and became involved, forming Munay Rumi.
