Antonio and Janeth Alvarado Choquehuanca were raised in a family where the art of knitting was carefully curated and treasured through generations. Tough mountain climate of Peruvian Andes with temperatures reaching as low as – 25°C / 77°F makes warm clothes an almost necessity. Farming animals, specifically alpacas, is an integral part of Peruvian culture. Famous for the exceptional quality of their warm, lightweight and waterproof wool, alpaca clothes are renowned across the world and became a signature of Peru.
All Day Comfort
Support Peruvian industry
Most of the Peruvian manufacturers are local people with the limited economical ability to organize their own business. They are forced to sell their unique art to large companies. Antonio and Janeth decided to support their community. In 2019, they formed a partnership and opened a small plant where they employed the citizens of the Quispicanchi area to manufacture unique alpaca clothing. In 2021, the partners opened a small store in Lima, the capital of Peru, and started selling directly to consumers.
