Our knitwear is crafted in Peru by a company run by the amazing Mariela, a family business that was originally founded by her mother in the 70s. Their transparent and sustainable system has been a huge inspiration to Aqvarossa on our journey, showing the possibilities of a close relationship between economic success and social responsibility. They are Fair Trade Certified with production taking place in Lima, Cuzco, Puno and forty small studios throughout Peru. They work closely with the small scale farmers whose alpaca wool they use and create jobs in otherwise remote regions. This ensures proximity to traditional craftsmanship and promotes the preservation of long held skills passed from generation to generation.
