A handwoven textile is more than just a piece of fabric; it’s a piece of history. Peruvian textiles can be traced back for thousands of years. Careful preservation has kept this art form alive today, and the skilled artisans who create the woven fabrics used in our designs, do so by combining heritage techniques passed down through generations, with technology that ranges from traditional to modern.

Peru has the longest continuous history of textile production in the world, going back almost 10,000 years. Invented long before pottery and just as humans started agriculture, Peruvian fiber manipulation began with simple spun fibers, moving on through cords and nets. By 500 C this rudimentary craft had developed into complex weaving, employing practically every technique known today.
