About us & Our Products
Founded in 2014, Peacock opened it's little boutique in a small town called Waedenswil, ZH. It clearly was a work of passion towards bringing quality textiles to Switzerland. In the times where third world nations are exploited, we started our journey to make a difference by fighting poverty, supporting communities and ensuring jobs. We hope to continue our journey and keep offering you the best of textiles and crafts from India made by smiling and happy people.
