Peru: Leader in quality, sustainable and eco-friendly manufacturingThursday, March 23, 2017 > 16:44:52
Tome is the latest high-end fashion brand to include Made-in-Peru in their Fall '17 collection after visiting Peru last October. More and more, American brands are moving their manufacturing to Peru, joining designers such as Ralph Lauren, John Varvatos, Jonathan Adler and Prada, all pioneers of producing in Peru. As designers are looking to manufacture their collections in a sustainable and eco-friendly way utilizing quality materials, they are turning to Peru and its native fibers of Alpaca and Pima Cotton.
Brands from around the world will have the opportunity to attend PeruModa, the largest international fashion and manufacturing trade show in Latin America, April 5-7 in Lima. 600 exhibitors will showcase a diverse range of manufacturing capabilities, working with the best natural fibers as well as a wide variety of blends. Peruvian manufacturing combines technologically advanced machines and techniques while staying true to its roots of supporting artisans with hand-knitting.
Following the rave reviews from Tome's NY Fashion Week runway show, Peru's own designers made an impact at the New York trade shows, showing off their collections. Included in the mix were brands that produce luxe Alpaca outerwear and sweaters like Sumy Kujon, Anntarah, Kuna, Republica del Tejido and Escudo, fashion-forward styles by Ayni, Alessandra Petersen, Equi-Libreum, specialty prints by Ana G, Balkanica and Susan Wagner. Hand-crafted leather shoes by Huma Blanco along with jewelry and handbags by Lorena Pestana, Iya Mayta and Lima Sagrada were also on display.
Peruvian manufacturing, home décor, fashion and more will all be under one roof at the upcoming PeruModa. Maximize the trip by also visiting the multitude of factories and designer ateliers. In addition, there is much to see, do and eat while in Lima, including 3 of the 50 Best Restaurants in the World.
