We’re not big on short time trends. We create timeless, high quality garments and accessories for our customers, exclusively made from the best fibers and yarns on the market available today. We source only the finest materials. The softest fibers make up the basis for creating longlasting and personal wearables you’ll love to wear for years to come. Our apparel is exclusively made from the most sustainable and functional materials on earth. Part of our collection is made out of organic blends with other fine fibers, creating smart collections. We only use 100% natural fabrics and yarns combined with Alpaca such as Vicuña, Merino Wool, Silk, Linen, Bambu and Pima Cotton.
We explored the full potential of these fibres, reaching out to high-end small producers open to new ideas, to co-create distinctive clothing lines. Guaranteed to offer you unique pieces of clothing and supplementary goods. We use finer, longer yarns that result in stronger, softer, better alpaca apparel. A difference you have to feel!
We are dedicated to changing the way people shop. Our customers are seeking an alternative to factory-made designs, they care about the environment and the humans behind their purchases and want to have a positive impact in the world. Our part is to create well-thought-through durable garments that are not intended to end up as waste within one season.
When fashion is done right, we all do well. You, us, farmers, garment workers, and our shared home, Planet Earth. Everyone can prosper, and we can all do our small part to change the world. Just by being conscious about the way we buy our clothes.

SUSTAINABLE ALPACA FARMING
We’re in It for the Long Haul. With our partners we strive for sustainable alpaca farming and wool production. PACOMARCA invests in veterinary care for more than 1 million animals and provides sustainable breeding programs for healthier, happier alpacas. To preserve their way of life and live in the best conditions possible. PACOMARCA seeks to contribute to the sustainability of alpaca production through the improvement of fiber quality. Supporting the peruvian alpaca breeders and their legacy. With that providing better income for the breeders as well.
We only work with facilities that operate under clean energy-powered manufactoring and no toxic chemicals. Using non-toxic dyes to dye the fibers. All of our yarn is tested for contaminants and we ensure that only biodegradable dyes are used. We respect and appreciate the fact that alpaca yarn comes from nature, and it’s important for us to protect our natural resources. Our alpaca yarn manufactorers currently use a closed loop water filtration system with all of the waste water being cleaned and re-used. Solar energy is used for 50% of their entire wool spinning proces in association with Pacomarca
We have the recognition of the Global Reporting Initiative for participation in their Business Program to contribute in Peru’s sustainability reporting.
