Inspired by the love for her native country of Peru, Cristina Dioguardi established Beyond Threads in 1992 with her long time friend Alejandra Bedoya. Over the years, they found there was a niche in the market for garments and accessories that combined Peruvian craftsmanship with contemporary timeless styling. In 2013, Beyond Threads joined efforts with Mery Luz Salva, a self taught jeweler designer who was born in Peru to establish Beyond Threads Jewelry Collection. The jewelry designs are crafted from Recycled textiles that are transformed into stunning pieces of wearable art. These Eco-friendly items along with their clothing and other accessories are ethically made in Peru. Beyond Threads is always striving to use natural sustainable fibers and work with groups that follow fair trade practices.
