Peru - Organic Cotton, Baby Alpaca, and Hand-Loomed Wool
100% GOTS Certified Pima cotton
The quality of cotton can vary greatly; for our bedding and layette we choose only premium pima cotton from Peru for its silky smooth feel and exceptional quality.
The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibers, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
Why Pima Cotton?
Its fibers are longer, stronger and finer than regular cotton, meaning that it can be woven into a softer and more luxurious fabric with exceptional color brilliance and strength. High quality construction ensures each piece maintains its shape during wear and washing.
Our Hand-Loomed Wool Rugs & Pillows
Each rug or pillow is hand-loomed by a single artisan, using techniques passed down through the generations in a family-run workshop in Peru. Each piece is therefore a unique work of art.
The process starts with the flocks of sheep found in the highlands of Puno City. Their wool is used for the 100% wool yarn, which is hand-dyed in small quantities using water-based dyes. The highly-skilled weavers then work on a traditional loom to hand-make each piece with care.
