Inspiring meaningful consumption
Our mission is to offer a design-conscious brand that inspires meaningful consumption. Studies show that the average person only wears 20-30% of the clothes they own - and leading fashion stylists recommend that a carefully curated wardrobe is the answer.
Modern essential pieces crafted with quality materials
Stronger, softer, lighter, and warmer than either merino wool or cashmere, alpaca is a natural choice for knitwear. It is especially known for its silky sheen and luxurious softness. Its hollow fibers help to regulate body temperature, keeping the wearer cool in warmer seasons and warm in cooler climates.
With proper care, alpaca can be worn for years, reducing the demand for new products and lowering their environmental impact. Its strength reduces stretching and distortion, and grease and oil don’t spot alpaca as easily as they do other fibers.
Our commitment to sustainability
Alpaca is biodegradable and renewable, making it a green textile. It is naturally free of lanolin and other oils found in sheep’s wool, hence no harsh chemicals are needed to process alpaca fiber, making alpaca ranching 100% natural and safe for the environment.
Alpaca wool possesses an outstanding self-cleaning capacity. After wearing, it is usually sufficient to air the garment. This allows for reduction in water waste and detergent use.
Handcrafted by artisans
Selected pieces in our collection were hand crafted by Peruvian women artisans who work from home so they may continue to take care of their children while earning a fair wage.
