A RESPONSIBLE APPROACH TO FASHION: luxury handmade clothing with a mission to drive sustainable employment in the developing world.
We specialize in luxury handmade clothing with a mission to drive sustainable employment in the developing world. We work with expert indigenous artisans in Bolivia and Peru, 70% - 80% being women. We respect and utilize handmade manufacturing techniques that have taken generations to perfect. Our focus is on social responsibility and environmentally conscious practices.
Anita Arzé has taken a socially and ecologically responsible approach to fashion.
Anita Arzé dug into her cultural roots and drew upon the craftsmanship of Bolivian knitting for the basis of her eponymous line of hand made goods. When she decided to launch the collection she knew she wanted to access all the craft available where her parents grew up. Arzé borrows the inspiration of traditional South American wears and interprets the ideas into "modern and clean" styles. The beautiful collection of handmade goods is made up of materials such as alpaca, alpaca/silk, Pima cotton, and organic Pima cotton. Arzé not only uses elements from modern and ancient culture to express her ideas, but reaches towards deeper inspiration that is socially and environmentally conscious.
