03 Animal Wellbeing

The alpacas and vicunas, which provide us with the raw material, live in conditions of well-being, and free from suffering. The farms that provide us with alpacas and vicunas must comply with the five animal freedoms during their breeding.

Their fibers are obtained through the Inca shearing technique, recognized as a Technical Standard by the Peruvian State, which reduces the stress level of the animals during the process.We mitigate the risk of extinction of the vicuna and ensure its conservation through the sustainable management of its fiber.
