Traditional processes

All our traditional processes are by hand. The alpacas are raised in natural high altitude pastures where the Aymaras live, in the Andes highlands (known as the  “Altiplano”) of Chile and Bolivia. They are bred and kept in conditions free from any stress or pesticides. The fibre is hand sheared once a year and then hand spun to produce hand-woven accessories, textiles and fabrics. Tailor made apparel collections are made in our studio workshop.

We only use the alpaca’s natural colours, combined with both naturally occurring dyes and some biodegradable chemical dyes. Textiles are hand washed only once, therefore water consumption and pollution is kept to a minimum.
