For some time now in search of fibers to weave handmade ponchos in the Puna of Argentina we found original communities full of history and tradition in the ancient knowledge of weaving.
Among amazing landscapes they raise llamas, guanacos and vicuñas from which they extract great quality fine fibers. This destination inspired us to found a company that could bring those unique fibers to the world.
This is how ALTAPUNA was born, a company dedicated to produce yarns and fabrics with the highest finesse and quality from these noble fibers of the Andes, manually classified and processed in a context where our priority is the sustainability of the environment and the preservation of old and ancient techniques of its inhabitants.
From here, the most modern spinning and weaving techniques are applied to produce beautiful and lasting garments that respect the organic character of their origin.
