Cha’ska: stoles, ponchos and accessories in Baby Alpaca
Cha’ska, meaning “star” in Quechua, is a brand founded by David Colomba, a globe-trotting adventurer in love with Peru, beautiful materials and crafts.
Concerned with the ecological footprint of the fashion industry and eager to perpetuate a craft tradition, David wanted to design original pieces with unparalleled longevity that will sublimate your outfits and adapt to your style.
Cha’ska is also the story of an encounter at an altitude of 3,000 meters with Peru’s oldest art: weaving.
All the creations of the house of Cha’ska are made by a family of Peruvian weavers with the greatest respect for traditional artisanal methods.
A 100% ethical and ecological production, made with respect for animals and with fair remuneration for craftsmen.
Zoom on the Baby Alpaca: The alpaca is a small camelid from the Andes Cordillera that lives between 3,000 and 4,500 metres above sea level. In this region, temperatures can vary between -25° and +35°! Baby Alpaca does not refer to a fibre from a baby alpaca, but to the extreme fineness of a wool with exclusive qualities. Natural, Noble and Prestigious, it was called "the Fiber of the Gods" by the Incas. Today it is internationally recognized as one of the finest and most luxurious fibres in the world.
Light, silky and resistant, the alpaca does not plop. It is a naturally thermoregulatory, hypoallergenic and waterproof fiber.
