Artisans

Handcraft is an art that has been carried throughout generations in peruvian families. It is by sheltering this traditions that many local people work very hard to provide for their families.

We believe that artisans should be recognized and receive a fair payment for their work, which unfortunately sometimes does not happen, making it impossible for them to continue living on their art. We work hand by hand with local artisans specialized in handmade alpaca fur and yarn products for home goods, home decoration, accessories and toys.

Our responsibility towards artisans is to help them enhance their business competitiveness and skills by improving the quality of their handcraft, attention to details and standarization of products without losing the essence of the handmade touch.

Guilt-free Fur

We, at qata alpaca goods, believe in sustainability and have a comitment to respect the environment that is why all of our alpaca fur products are develop with selected hides that have been collected from natural decease animals.

In peru alpacas are legally protected by senasa (national agrarian health service). On the other hand, local breeders take good care of their animals since their main income comes from the alpaca fibre sales which takes place once a year after the shearing. Unfortunately, around 13% of the alpaca population die due to harsh weather conditions in the andes, parasitarian illnesses and infections and lack of food and water during frosting season.
