Social Commitment

What social commitments does Maloja stand by?

In 2013 our „ Pachamama“collection lead us all the way to South America where we visited a charity project called Wipalla in Bolivia. The goal of the project was and is to this day to improve the living conditions of socially displaced children, young adults and financially challenged women.

Wipalla represents 90 young people between the ages of 7 and 26 years of age, who are provided with healthy food, shelter, tutoring, workshops and the opportunity to become trained as a baker, tailor or metal worker. In addition Wipalla supports 20 female students with their studies.

Maloja has helped to establish a knitting community of approximately 40 women linked to Wipalla. The women knit alpaca wool and receive a living wage for their work which enables them to send their children to school. We have added hats, scarves, jackets and wristbands to our product portfolio produced by the Wipalla community since we started with them in 2013.

The Andes philosophy of giving back what you take has inspired us and continues to do so to this day.
