Why is there a Built For Man?

Posted: Aug 05 2011

Built For Man founder Francisco Hernandez is a world traveler, and during his time in rural Peru he
was touched by the kindness and gentleness of the people there, especially as the spirit of the native
people had always shown through despite difficult circumstances.

Upon his return to the United States, Francisco could not forget about the people he met in
South America and acted to positively impact their lives. Hernandez found it logical that bringing
the finest products offered by the Peruvian people to the United States for Americans to enjoy
would improve their economy and, in turn, improve their lives.

Thusly, ‘Built For Man’ was launched. James Laver wrote "Clothes are never a frivolity: they always
mean something", and in this case, the beautiful fabrics, clothing, and accessories made by the
people of Peru mean that we are building a  better world. When you purchase a Built for Man product,
not only are you acquiring a beautiful garment, you are also positively impacting lives thousands
of miles away.
