The Facts: The Mapuche nation constitutes one of the largest indigenous societies in South America, and it is the most numerous of the indigenous people in Chile; however the country lacks recognition of Mapuche in its constitution.  Less than 3% of Mapuche in Chile receive any education beyond high school, and roughly 1/3 live below the poverty line.

The Power of Fashion: VOZ works with female Mapuche artisans in Chile and Peru to empower them financially, creatively and professionally. All fabric used is high quality natural and ecological fiber and is hand-dyed and woven, preserving ancient craft traditional to the artisans’ communities.
