The history of textiles in Peru began five thousand years ago when the weavers of the pre-Inca cultures began to manipulate the natural fibres of cotton and alpaca. These manufacturing techniques have been passed down from generation to generation and are admired as a masterpiece of the industry. Today, these ancestral techniques, combined with modern manufacturing processes, are combined with designers, weavers and garment makers to produce modern, comfortable and original garments.
Peru concentrates 80% of the world's production of alpaca fibre.
The alpaca is a camelid that lives at an altitude of four thousand metres, in regions where temperatures vary from -20 degrees to +30 degrees. As part of the process of adapting to the variability of climates, this camelid has developed small air sacs which, when it is cold, warm them up, and when it is hot they contract, managing to cool the animal's skin. In other words, they have a natural thermoregulatory effect. In addition, it has 22 natural colours and a silk-like shine, is anti-allergic and its production has a sustainable impact on nature.
