In the autumn winter collection, our garments are made of the softest alpaca blends. Alpaca is a cousin of the llama and is prized for it's thermal properties, silkiness and durability. Alpaca is a fiber which does not come at the expense of the environment. Alpacas graze at elevations of 3500 to 5000 meters in the Peruvian Andes mountains. Aymara only uses the finest alpaca fibers, called baby alpaca.
Excellent natural fibers play a key role and are the starting point of each Aymara design. In the spring summer collection, our knits are made of ORGANIC COTTON. Conventional cotton uses a lot of water, pesticides an other chemicals. The production of organic cotton doesn't use any chemicals and uses very little
Linen is the world's strongest natural fiber and thus, linen clothing is long-lasting. Linen is very breathable and releases moisture very fast, creating a feeling of well-being on the skin. It's hypo-allergenic properties make it particularly suitable for contact with sensitive skin.
It is a very robust plant that does not need to be irrigated and it requires very low amounts of chemicals such as fertilizers. The cultivation of flax improves the quality of the soil, making it more fertile and productive for subsequent crops, favoring bio-diversity.
We use either recycled or corozo buttons on our garments.
Corozo is a natural product that comes from the nut of tagua, a palm tree that grows in the rain forests of South America.
Due to the economic value of corozo, these ancient palm trees are protected in contrast to many other rain forests around the world which are being cut down. One could say that tagua buttons are saving the tropical rainforest.
