Since 1976, Peruvian Collection has been dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of luxurious textile designs from all over the world.  The in-house studio of talented designers creates everything from scratch—from the seasonal color palettes and custom dyes to the actual drawings and patterns themselves. These intricate knit and woven designs are then brought beautifully to life by highly skilled Andean artisans—craftswomen whose textile tradition goes back millennia. These gorgeous knit and woven pieces are made from luxury fibers native to the Andes—silky soft alpaca and Peruvian pima cotton. Although Peruvian Collections core design inspiration springs from Peru, their varied collections celebrate ethnographic textiles from cultures all over the world. Like this pima cotton knit Pullover,  in an exotic lace based on Moroccan tilework. $159 USD.

This Cyclades Sundress fuses innocence, romance and gorgeous workmanship. Lavished with lace and brocade embroidery, this cotton pinafore is styled with a ribbon waist, tank straps and a scallop-edged, full skirt. Fully lined. $189.00 USD. Ships to Canada, the U.S., Japan, and most European countries.
