Quality & Excellence

Having extensive experience with llamas and their fiber, a lifetime of dressing for life lived outdoors, an appreciation of the Aymara culture and its tie to the environment of the altiplano region, and the connections and relationships with the many people necessary to collaborate on such a multifaceted venture; we occupy a position no one else shares.

5 decades of llama experience

Our Journey & Legacy

History & Heritage


The Aymara have weathered years of marginal subsistence with their llamas and are being forced from this existence as the global economy encroaches. Our hope is to link the Aymara to a viable economy through the fiber they expertly produce and ultimately see their traditional culture endure.

The history and future of the Aymara on the altiplano has been a driving force for our clothing line made from llama fiber.

Llama Culture

Llamas played a prominent role in the Quechua (Inca) culture and economy prior to the Spanish conquest of the Andean region. Spanish colonization of the Incan Empire in the 16th Century displaced the people, their culture, and their economy, and they remain marginalized to this day. But a global market for llama-fiber textiles and clothing in the 21st Century offers hope. Today the Quechua people are reclaiming part of their native culture in a way that is timeless, traditional and compatible with their environment. Llamas once again are the answer, providing the basis for a viable, sustainable economy.
