Lourdes started a new chapter in her life the day she joined KNOWN SUPPLY. She left her tough past in the mountains behind to move forward and create a better life for herself and those she loves most. An affectionate and sacrificial mother, she used to work any odd job to get by. Family is everything to Lourdes, so she is thankful that her job allows her to spend her evenings at home with her children.


“First, to have my family together and healthy. Second, I’d like to own my own business.


“I love singing and listening and dancing to music.”


“My friends would describe me as talented and generous.”

Dear Lourdes,

I read your bio and found that we have a lot in common. I, too, love my family and work for the common good for all. I wish you well in starting your own business. I think you are a talented, dedicated woman. My husband traveled to Peru last year representing our church. He really liked the people and land. I wear the hat all the time. We have about 6 inches of snow on the ground and another storm on the way. So the hat you made is warm and not itchy wool. Thanks for your beautiful work. I hope you and your children are healthy!

¡Gracias Lourdes! Estoy amando mi chuyo. Me encanta saber que fue hecho en Perú, con lana peruana del altiplano. Te agradezco mucho haberlo hecho tan bien. Vivo en Seattle en EEUU hace unos años, pero soy peruano asi que estoy resistiendo aqui el frio con un pedazo de Perú en mi cabeza :).
