"I am a fan"

This is my fourth or maybe even fifth alpaca shawl from Raquel and Gregor -- they are all soft and beautiful and get lots of use. You do need to take care of them, as they will snag. But the alpaca fibers are strong and just need to be tucked back in now and then.

"Wonderful scarf!"

I got this scarf for my husband because he loves black scarves (very basic taste) and I love alpacas. He used it this past cold spell, and loved it!

"Exquisite Elegance"

Deliciously comfortable and sophisticatedly stylish, the shawl wraps itself about the shoulders gracefully and transforms any outfit into elegance. I purchased one for myself and fell in love with it so much I soon after purchased another as a gift for my cousin. She, too, fell in love with its design, quality and comfort.

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

Raquel and Gregor are dedicated to preserving the traditions woven into Peruvian culture from pre-Incan times. Like many before them, they learned their textile craft from elders in the community and they pass their knowledge to the younger artisans who work with them. Each piece produced in their workshop is woven on a wooden floor loom and finished by hand. Created from natural fibers — alpaca, cotton and silk — their work echoes the natural colors of the Peruvian landscape, reverberating with the rich hues of the mountains, the jungle and the coast.

Moving On Up

Moving On Up

Raquel and Gregor are deeply committed to building a sustainable workshop that offers a flexible supportive environment for the people who collaborate with them, most of whom are women. They have a special room at the workshop for the women to breastfeed or otherwise care for their children. Many of these women work solely for the purpose of being able to educate their children. Raquel and Gregor also have a deep respect for the environment and have installed solar panels in their workshop, a rarity in Peru.

Working with Disabilities

Working with Disabilities

Among the quality control assistants at Raquel and Gregor's workshop is one who is profoundly deaf. The rest of the team takes great pride in the way they have learned to communicate with her. They treasure what she has taught them about communicating with her and with each other.

Microcredit Financing

Microcredit Financing

Raquel and Gregor has received 9 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1400 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to buy more silk, cotton and alpaca wool for her shawls and accessories.
