Machitos backpacks

All Machitos backpacks are handmade by local artisans in Lima. MACHITOS merges authentic peruvian craftsmanship with an urban touch with their limited collections. It is with consciousness that Machitos designs all their backpacks. We launched “ Backpacks For Barrios”, a program which aims to improve life in the slums of the peruvian capital. You can now wear your backpacks proudly.

Machitos works with local organisations

1 backpack = 1 job backed

At Machitos, we support the “Women builders” project created by the association Mano a mano. Mano a Mano empowers women from La Ensenada, a neighborhood of Lima, by teaching them methods and techniques such as painting, masonry, plumbing, etc. The program was created to encourage financial independence for women in the community.    

Peruvian artisans

Machitos backpacks are hand-crafted by local artisans in Peru. For more than 3,000 years, craftsmanship has been an art of peruvian culture.
