As our founders both grew up in Peru, we are dedicated to making a positive impact on our society through engaging in social projects. Our initiatives are close to our hearts and we pour our energy into them. Currently, we have two projects in our home country that we are particularly proud of. The first is Centro Yanachaga, which focuses on empowering communities. The second is Royal Knit, where we support farmers around Titicaca Lake. We believe that every little step counts towards making the world a better place, and we are grateful for the opportunity to contribute to our community in our own small way.
Centro Yanachaga ProjectRead More
Centro Yanachaga is a project that houses 40 boys and 20 girls of secondary school age from extremely poor families in Peru. The project offers workshop lessons in areas such as organic vegetable production, dairy farming, and carpentry. It's financed by donations from Germany, with some income from its own production. Eyewear brand 5Loops is supporting the project by donating glasses to encourage the teenagers in their school career and everyday lives.
Royal Knit ProjectRead More
Co-founders Cutipa Benita and Sebastián López started Royal Knit in 2000 to produce high-quality clothing and textiles using ancient sewing techniques from the communities around Titicaca Lake. Royal Knit participates in major fairs and is committed to sustainable fashion and supporting workers, especially women workers, in remote regions of Peru. The brand provides better production opportunities through their reading glasses to help families live a better life.
Our company is built on two core values: Flora, which represents our commitment to cooperation and collaboration with others, and Fauna, which represents our dedication to supporting those in need. We are proud to partner with other charity organizations, to make a positive impact on the world. By working together with these organizations to support those in need, we uphold our mission as a sustainable eyewear brand that not only focuses on sustainability within our own operations but also aims to make a difference in the areas of the world that need it most.
