Tejido works with small artisan communities in North and South America. Tejido is a textile and accessories design brand, working with master artisans, with a focus of preserving the indigenous traditions of handmade textiles. Working primarily in Peru, their products incorporate natural fibers, the use of hand-looms, crochet, handknitting, and plant based dyes. From the handloomed textiles, Tejido constructs the products in their Bay Area studio.
Shanti Rackley is the designer and founder of Tejido and has worked over 10 years in the industry for both larger scale companies and small independent designers. Shanti's love for textiles brought her to Peru some years back. With a new focus on working with knitting groups and women's fair trade cooperatives, Shanti began a line of accessories and home textiles that have sold to retailers such as Free People, Club Monaco, and more.
