Made in Perú

INKAMODA: an example of how family love can impact the lives of so many, and change their futures.

INKAMODA invites us to reconnect with our origins, with nature, and with its wisdom through ancestral arts. The brand was founded on the pillars of respect for native people, animals, nature and Andean traditions.

INKAMODA, together with artisans, alpaca breeding communities, and weavers, began working to preserve the skills, knowledge, and traditions of the inhabitants of the area. Although ancestral arts are considered cultural heritage of humanity, their existence in today's world is extremely fragile and they are always in danger of extinction.

With the aim of generating a profound and long-term impact, we worked to unite and revalue local techniques and talents to create a sustainable fashion.  Our mission is to solve the problems faced by artisans and producers of natural fibers that inhabit Cusco and the Andes, and create an alternative and sustainable model for the fashion and fabric industry

OUR STORY

ETHICAL AND SUSTAINABLE FASHION

ALPACA: GOLD OF THE ANDES

In the time of the Incas, royalty considered garments made of alpaca fiber to be their most precious and valuable.  The reason for this is alpaca fiber's characteristics of being soft, warm, lightweight, breathable, durable, sustainable and one of the finest fibers in the world. Alpaca fiber thermal regulates and keeps your body at its natural temperature.

EMPOWERING WOMEN

Many women in these Andean communities are living in poverty; and they have very low self-esteem. INKAMODA provides training and fair wages for these women, and they use their earnings to improve the quality of life for their families and communities. We promote initiatives that strengthen women's capacities to achieve these skills autonomously.

We enable them to become perseverant warrior women who become our suppliers and main allies, and teach them to portray, in each garment, the story behind the label.

Since its creation, INKAMODA has created alliances with the best artisans in the Andes, and has established a direct collaboration with each of the local communities. Thanks to this holistic approach and without intermediaries, the Andean communities with which they work have grown their production capacity, generated better income and contributed to their economic and human development. This has given them pride and courage for what they do.

INKAMODA works toward the sensitization of society for a sustainable development of the artisans we work with. We strive to raise awareness about conscious dress and increase the demand for ethical fashion worldwide.
