EcoChic Alpaca Pure Ethical Luxury

EcoChic Alpaca Pure Ethical Luxury

 

Wrap in pure ethical style with the launch of EcoChic’s matching sets of ethically produced baby alpaca berets, mittens and scarves sold exclusively on EcoChic Collection.

These beautifully handmade, soft and luxurious ethical products have been created by skilled artisans in Peru where the making of textiles is a cultural tradition going back centuries, using a luxury 100 per cent baby alpaca yarn, which is as superior to cashmere.

EcoChic Knitwear SuppliersFounder of EcoChic Collection, Deborah Miarkowska said: ‘The idea came when I realised that I used a scarf and a wrap separately and I explored the idea of having a scarf that could be both and it works’.

“I wanted to utilise a beautiful luxury yarn from an ethical source, into a versatile scarf and wrap, a two in one piece with elegance and simplicity in mind with a matching beret and long wristwarmers, as often it is difficult to get things that match, especially ethical sets”.

The exclusive collection can be bought in a variety of neutral tones from noir, ivory, soft grey, navy marl or mink. The long mittens cost £36.00, Beret £38.00 & Wrap Scarf £125.

Ethical Production processes.

The factory where the range is produced employs twenty two people, many of these people’s lives are blighted by poverty, poor education and violence in the home. Having a stable job changes lives and this work also offers employment rights of a fair wage, health care and a pension, which is rare in Peru.

The use of the alpaca fibre is environmentally-sound, because up in the high mountain plateau Altiplano in the Andes at over 3,000 metres, nothing else grows – so the alpaca utilises land that is otherwise unusable. Around 2,200 families are involved in alpaca farming above 3,000 metres, which equates to around nearly 15,000 people who, if not for this, would have no other means of earning a living.

Our Ivory Alpaca Set is modelled by Erin who loves ethical fashion because:

“I am becoming increasingly concerned about our environment and wish to do everything I can to be a global citizen. Wearing clothes that have been ethically produced and traded makes me feel like I am one step in the right direction”.

Thanks Erin.
