The family business Royal Knit was founded by Benita and Sebastán, who previously worked as teachers in the indigenous communities surrounding Lake Titicaca in the Altiplano region of Peru. They founded Royal Knit to keep the ancient weaving techniques alive and to increase the artisans’ income opportunities through international sales. The company cooperates with weavers in different regions of Peru.

Royal Knit is member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
