"Gossypium barbadense" is the scientific name for cotton grown in Peru. Pre-Inca cultures used it to make fabrics that to this day retain their properties
At the beginning of the 20th century, the Pima (in Piura) and Tangüis (in Ica) varieties of cotton emerged, which are unique. Their extra long staple length, results in unparalleled softeness, quality as well as durability and resistance to pilling
In addition, Pima cotton garments have a special shine and hand feel that is unlike any other, while Tangüis is perfect for blending with other natural and synthetic fibers to make technologically advanced materials.
In the case of alpaca fiber, 80% of world production is concentrated in Peru, being highly valued for its softness, ease of weaving, anti-allergy properties and variety in its natural tones.
