Why our customers love Alqo Wasi
The many talented people who work with Alqo Wasi are from vulnerable and marginalised zones, where their trade is often overlooked or undervalued. By employing local hand-looming and natural-dye experts, as well as artisan weavers, embroiderers, and knitters, Alqo Wasi proudly helps create and sustain a future for local communities—and for pets around the world.
Alpaca wool, one of the world’s most luxurious fibers, is a jewel amid all the synthetic fibers and harsh materials found in our everyday lives. Softer than cashmere, and available in a wide array of colors, alpaca serves as a natural thermostat by using microscopic air pockets to trap body heat in cooler temperatures and to release heat in warmer weather. The world of high fashion recognizes alpaca for its natural attributes: its fineness, durability,hypoallergenic and lightweight qualities.
Founder and director
Patricia Queirolo: "We combine textile heritage and global trends with alpaca—a raw, sustainable, and luxurious fibre—to make our designs unique. To travel and to learn from other cultures with the aim of offering a ‘glocal’ product pushes me to strengthen Alqo Wasi for the future. One of the things I am most proud of is that we work responsibly and we can positively impact so many people, their pets and the environment."
Alqo Wasi´s has been exporting its products since 2005 and can be found through local distributors in Europe, USA, Canada, Asia and Australia; and ships out of our warehouse located in Lima, with very low minimums. The company delivers in 3 to 5 business days worldwide.
