WHAT WE DO
The guanaco is one of the four species of camelids particular to South America, along with the alpaca, llama and vicuña. Its name comes from the quechua word “wanaku”. Our SAG and CITES certifications demonstrate our goal to use only leathers that allow sustainable development of the species.
Highly resistant and versatile, suitable for different uses. Also known for its elasticity, guanaco leather is excellent for high quality products. Regarding the fur, it is an excellent insulator due to its tubular and hollow fiber coat, allowing extremely smooth and low density.
Our products are unique and produced in small quantities under careful management of each process. They are characterized by their design, attention to detail and hand finishing.
