THE TECHNIQUE

Indigenous to the Andean highlands, luxurious alpaca wool is highly prized for its warmth, strength, and lightweight texture. Alpacas have been bred for thousands of years for both their meat and fleece, and comprise a large component of traditional South American culture. The Inca civilization was primarily based in textiles made from alpaca wool, making the fabric an integral part of the rich history of the Andes.

Each piece from Artesania Sorata is made by hand in Bolivia. The female artisans dye the wool by hand using natural dyes made from local ingredients, such as walnut leaves, thola, and cochineal. The natural dyes are environmentally friendly, sustainable, and soft on the wool. With this soft yarn, the artisans knit each piece by hand. Each artisan has a unique style, and often adds embroidered patterns inspired by traditional weavings, geometric symbols, animals, or birds.
