La actriz y activista humanitaria Emma Watson contó en su página de Facebook e Instagram que viste sandalias fabricadas en Perú, bajo una marca estadounidense promotora del comercio justo.

“Las sandalias fueron hechas por un equipo de expertos zapateros en Trujillo, Perú, en una fábrica gestionada y operada por Nisolo, que promueve salarios bajo el comercio justo, en condiciones laborales seguras y saludables para sus empleados”, escribió Watson.

La protagonista de la saga Harry Potter y embajadora de Buena Voluntad de ONU Mujeres, colgó una serie de fotografías suyas durante una reciente visita humanitaria a Malawi en el marco de la campaña “HeforShe” a favor de la igualdad de género.

I had the most amazing day in Malawi today. Thank you President Mutharika for being a #HeForShe Impact Champion and for making gender equality a priority in your Government! Thank you to all the traditional leaders who are implementing President Mutharika's policies – especially Chief Kachindamoto (she’s in the photo with me, she’s formidable and has been nicknamed “The Terminator”!). She gave me such a warm welcome today. She has implemented the annulment of so many child marriages and restored the futures of these girls. With the help and collaboration of her local chiefs, mothers’ groups and religious leaders she has managed to annul almost 1500 child marriages, sending the girls back to school. President Mutharika has committed to make child marriage a thing of the past in Malawi within the next five years. It was amazing to be on the ground with @UNWomen and Chief Kachindamoto to witness their work! My @tomenyc white shirt is made from organic cotton and is part of their 'White Shirt Project’ campaign. The project was conceived in 2014 to raise funds and awareness for the Freedom for All charity, which is fighting human trafficking and modern day slavery. The silk skirt is by @zady. Zady partnered with @cocccon_prakesh, founded in 2012 by Chandra Prakash Jha, a fashion designer who wanted to help his community through fairer wages and a safer, more sustainable process. Instead of using toxic pesticides on the plants that the silkworm caterpillars eat, the farmers protect the trees by covering them with mosquito nets to protect the leaves from harmful birds and insects. Then the silk is brought to New York where expert sewers in New York’s famed Garment District create each piece. Sandals by @nisoloshoes. The sandals were made by a team of expert shoemakers in Trujillo, Peru in a factory owned and operated by Nisolo that celebrates fair trade wages, safe working conditions, healthcare for all employees, and financial literacy & wellness training.

Watson detalló en las fotografías el origen de su vestuario, señalando que en el caso de su calzado éste se fabricó en la localidad peruana de Trujillo en talleres a cargo de Nisolo, una empresa fundada en 2011 en Nashville, Estados Unidos, que emplea a medio centenar de personas.

Trujillo, 700 kilómetros al norte de Lima, es famosa en Perú por acoger en un barrio popular a la mayor cantidad de emprendedores de zapatos, estimada en unos 10.000, que han encontrado en la producción de calzado de calidad una herramienta laboral para satisfacer sus aspiraciones profesionales.

La actriz británica ha filmado una nueva versión de La Bella y la Bestia, cuyo estreno mundial está previsto para marzo de 2017.
