Alpaca Collection group of throw blankets hanging, Fairkind artisan made goods from around the world
MADE FAIRLY: THE ALPACA COLLECTION

Tucked away in a quiet mountain village in the Central Highlands, our artisan partners use traditional looms to weave each blanket by hand. Alpaca has been a major part of Andean culture since ancient times - in fact, alpaca wool was once reserved only for Inca royalty.

Today, the majority of the world’s alpaca population is found in Peru where they graze wild ichu grass that grows in the high altitudes of the Andes. For these remote mountain villages, alpaca wool is a major part of their economy and creates thousands of jobs across the country.

Each blanket takes a week to make from start to finish. From weaving each intricate pattern to hand-tying every fringe, the collection is made exclusively in a fair trade environment and artisans are paid premium wages for their skills.
