Mission

Classic Alpaca is dedicated to producing and marketing quality products made of alpaca fiber.

We are committed to customer satisfaction and to improving the quality of life of our employees, suppliers and community. We believe strongly in protecting the environment and promoting fair trade practices.

It is our goal to be reliable and responsible.

History

At the beginning of 2003, Classic Alpaca began forming business relationships with U.S. retailers to whom we sold items such as sweaters, chullos and gloves acquired from third parties. As the market demand grew, so too did our customers requirements for quality and style.

We came to realize that we could meet the production targets of our important customers and control the quality and style of our garments only by operating our own production facility.

After searching for a site throughout Peru, we chose the city of Huancayo for our facility and, at the beginning of 2009, started production with a workshop of five local weavers. We are proud that our workshop now employs about 80 women working in specialized production areas of our facility. This achievement would not have been possible without the full support of our excellent workers.

We also have added a production facility in Lima and equipped it with two Stoll knitting machines, manufactured with German technology.

At the Lima facility, we make full-fashioned sweaters for both men and women, which has enabled us to enter the Canadian market.

We are working toward placing our brand in the European market.

Our showrooms both in Huancayo and Lima are large enough to accommodate visitors who wish to know more about our production and about the benefits of our Peruvian alpaca fiber, the "Gold of the Andes."
