Details

Alpacas were domesticated by ancient Peruvians thousands of years ago; their warm fleece was so valuable to the Incas that they often reserved it for members of the upper strata of their society. Peru's Jorge Molina prizes alpaca just as highly today. "In Europe, I discovered the fashion world," says the Andean artisan. "This strengthened my idea of creating apparel but in a material characteristic of my country. So I decided to work in alpaca wool." He works with baby alpaca, the silky soft fiber obtained at the season's first shearing, to craft this remarkable ruana. A milk white background is accented with patterned rows in ash grey and given symmetry and structure by the addition of a crimson red border. The sides of the knit wrap feature a rainbow design of lilac and blue stripes. A red button serves to close the fabulous wrap and also adds a pop of contrasting color.
