Root Capital & Raymisa: Creating Prosperity
Raymisa is a Peruvian company that produces and exports sustainable textiles, furniture and home décor to global retailers like HomeGoods and Pier 1 Imports. During the late 1980's Raymisa's headquarters near Lima, became a refuge for displaced artisan families fleeing the cycle of violence between the Shining Path guerrillas and the Peruvian military.
Today, Raymisa works with master artisans from across Peru creating traditional handcrafts and developing new furniture and home decor products for international markets. In this video, visit Raymisa's workshop in Lima and hear from its artisans about how Raymisa became the nucleus of their refugee community.
