It occurred with a big crush in Peru for the amazing alpaca fur. We instantly fell in love with its incredible softness and high qualities. Back to France we designed bags and home textiles according to slow fashion standards, closed to our values.
We came back to Peru, to check out personally the ethical treatment of alpacas, the low environment impact of our activity. It is also fundamental for us a to create a tight human link with craftsmen and suppliers.
After long hours of unsure rocked paths, we finally met the Q'Eros, a precarious herdsmen community, our fur supplier, lost in staggering Andean heights. Fiercely and proudly committed to their noble roots we were touched by their wisdom, sacred link with nature and alpacas. their enlightening smiles. We are honored to work with them.
