The Alpaca lives in the Highlands of the Andes at around 4 000 meters high where strong winds blow and temperatures go below -20° Celsius ! Its secret to resist is its warm and soft wool ! The breeding of Alpaca is very extensive : it can be seen wandering around in the big spaces of the Andes. The patterns are actually inspired from their surrounding landscapes !

The first shearing of the life of the Alpaca offer its best wool called Baby Alpaca. It is 10% thinner than regular Alpaca : about 22 microns versus 25.
Alpaca’s wool exist in many different natural colors which allow to get subtle and deep tints.

We are in collaboration with the NGO Los Chicos de Cusco that supports four schools in poor villages around Cusco. For each pair of sneakers we sell, we donate one euro. This represents the cost to send one pupil to school for a day, including the teacher's salary, school supplies and their uniform. It represents more than 20% of our benefits.
