Peru

JACKETS

Our Peruvian Jackets are sourced from Peruvian artisans and each style of jacket is representative of a particular community. Our artisans form part of a cooperative that enables them to sustain their livelihoods by working solely to preserve this thousand year old craft, at the same time teaching a younger generation the skills to do the same.

 

SWEATERS

The artisans who custom-weave our Nilda sweaters form part of a cooperative that enables them to sustain their livelihoods by working solely to preserve thousand-year old weaving techniques in the Peruvian highlands. Ultra-soft and luxurious, as well as being a hypoallergenic natural fiber, alpaca is one of the most comforting fibers to wear. Our alpaca sweaters are lovingly hand knitted for us, while the yarn is dyed using natural dyes derived from plants and vegetables in order to accurately depict an intricate traditional Andean textile pattern.

HATS

Men and children in the Peruvian highlands customarily wear our Peruvian hats; each hat features historical weaving motifs that are thousands of years old. The artisans form part of a fair-trade cooperative that enables them to sustain their livelihoods by working solely to preserve time-honoured weaving traditions, teaching a younger generation the skills to do the same.
