All our eyewear manufacturers bring touching life stories with them. So did the Peruvian Raquel, who had previously laboriously peeled garlic to feed herself and her children on the meager wages.
It used to be different. In order to be at work on time, she had to leave the house at dawn and not return until late in the evening. Our eyeglass production facility is located in the middle of the Pueblos Jóvenes, the desert-like outskirts of Lima, where the producers live with their families and can be reached quickly.
At the same time, we offer the women a protected place that allows them to work safely and with concentration. We see Raquel and her colleagues today as self-confident, satisfied and happy.
