Sustainability & Social impact
Our partner group of artisans work independently and who sustain themselves and their families by the progress of El Mercado Peru. Our encompassing goal is the continuation of this model into the future.
We use alpaca fiber from the Andes region in Peru. Alpaca fiber is more rare than cashmere. It is widely sought-after as a luxury material, due to its quality, scarcity, and remarkable characteristics. You can learn more about alpaca wool here
