Alpaca Knitters

Puno, Peru

Qoni, meaning “cozy” in Quechua, provides a platform for the work of an extraordinary group of highland women who raise, process, spin, dye and knit the fleece from their own alpaca herds. Combining local artisanal skills and natural dyes with a modern design aesthetic, the collection represents a thoughtful collaboration between contemporary design and regional craft.
