|KUNA is a peruvian lifestyle brand that is inspired by the unique textile heritage of the inca culture.||
It becomes apparent on the wonderful colors, fabrics and the excellent quality of the natural fibres alpaca, vikunja and pima cotton. KUNA combines the skill and the traditional knowledge of the textile craftsmen of the Andes with modern technology and design. The peruvian quality brand is part of the Inca Group, pioneer in the trade and export of alpaca products. The long experience in the selection of the precious fibres of new world camelids and the development of fine yarns help KUNA to keep control over the complete production process. Vertically integrated operations guarantee ethical business practices based on the wellbeing of man and nature throughout the whole value chain.
KUNA participates in several programs that benefit the local rural communities: Ttextile workshops, incentives that encourage the practice of raising alpacas, as well as the education of the local communities in the environment. For one of the projects the comany donated alpaca yarn to the remote village of Llali, where we taught 117 mothers knitting techniques. This way, 750 school children received a new warm sweater while their mothers earned a salary and learned a handicraft that provides an additional source of income.
In March 2010, Incalpaca, Kuna’s parent company has been praised by the Mexican Center for Philantrophy (CEMEFI) for exemplary social responsibility in Latin America. Only some months later, in September 2011, our contributions to the development of Peru were honored with the prestigious Premio Presidente de la República from the hands of the President of Peru.
We are proud to bring this unique prêt-à-porter collection to Europe and invite you to become part of the Kuna lifestyle:
