Biodegradable fibers we design garments with the potential to biodegrade harmlessly at the end of their lives in order to be proactive with the ecosystem.
Local fibers the essential objective of our development model is to raise the quality of life through the appropiate use of the fibers.We work with sustainable and eco-friendly raw material, less energy intensive and minimun polluting process sequences. Employing these materials we can reduce the footprint impact out of a textile product.
Alpaca farming has a low environmetal impact and is an interesting alternative. In terms of sustainability, alpaca is a natural fiber made of protein, so it will naturally biodegrade when disposed off and blends into the earth within a short period of time when compared with synthetic or man-made fibers which has a negative impact on enviroment.
Alpacas graze at elevations of 10,000-14,000 ft on the harsh altiplano of the Peruvian Andes. As a result, alpacas have incredible insulating coats that are warmer and stronger than wool, yet remarkably ligther in weigth. Alpaca´s unique durability and delicious softness make it one of the most luxurious fibers in the world. Their fleece have a minimal lanolin content, which make it almost hypoallergenic. It is naturally impermeable, thermally responsive, and has a low flammability point. The alpaca has a very fine and light fleece. It does not retain water, is thermal even when wet, and can resist solar radiation effectively.
Organic Cotton refers to naturally cotton without the use of any synthetic agricultural chemicals such as fertilizers, pesticides or transgenic technology. Organic cotton promotes and enhaces biodiversity and biological cycles and so is beneficial to human health and the environment.
