Traditional processes

All our 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. 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, so no artificial dyeing processes are used. Textiles are hand washed only once, therefore water consumption and pollution is kept to a minimum.
