Living in La Paz

In July 2014, I halted my travels to go volunteer at Artesania Sorata, a fairtrade clothing business, in La Paz, Bolivia.

Artesania Sorata has been working with local Aymara artisans in Bolivia for over 30 years to create beautiful, handmade and fairtrade clothing and products from alpaca and sheep's yarn. The income generated from selling these products helps these local artisans, from lower economic backgrounds in rural and urban Bolivia, to support their families and communities.

I wrote about it on Marielle Green's Hello World series here: On travel, tapestries and taking the unknown path, when I first began, and here's a little video on what it was like volunteering there and living in La Paz...

And, of course, some pictures...
