ALPACA HISTORY

The Peruvian textile history began five thousand years ago when weavers from pre-Inca and Inca cultures mastered the natural fibers of cotton and alpaca. Today, these ancestral techniques, mixed together with a modern and competitive manufacturing industry, result in the production of top quality garments for the discerning international market.

The high quality of Peruvian creations made with alpaca fiber astounds the world; noble fabrics inspired by the ancestral Andean culture. Peru concentrates 80% of the world’s total Alpaca fiber production. Nonetheless, more than quantity, what distinguishes Peruvian Alpaca is its softness, its adaptability to dyeing and ease for weaving.

Alpacas are native to the mountain range of the Andes; they reside at altitudes of more than 4,000 meters and withstand extreme temperatures. Alpacas have special thermal properties due to its microscopic air pockets, allowing air through on warm days to bring the wearers temperature down and trapping body heat in cold weather. In addition, alpaca fiber has a natural range of 22 colors and a silk-like luster, it is hypoallergenic and its production has a sustainable impact on the environment.
