Cotton, wool, and alpaca are the natural local materials used in our home textiles. From these, alpaca is one the finest and softest existing fibers in the world. This animal has always been present in peruvian history, as we can find paintings representing these south American camelids in prehistoric caves al over our peruvian territory.
All our home textiles are hand woven in traditional looms by weavers who have kept their traditions from ancient generations.
Crafts production is a way of creating jobs with relatively low investment. This encourages us to keep looking after market opportunities with new products every day. Not an easy job in this global and increasingly demanding world of today.
But the challenge is there and we feel we do our job when orders come in a permanent way and assure better incomes for all parts involved. We get inspiration from the traditional techniques and we use them to create contemporary textiles, pots, decorative objects and garments. Women and men depend on this production to make their living for them and their families.
