What We Do: a celebration of art, culture and the fabric of human existence.

Since 1976, Peruvian Connection has been dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of luxurious textile designs from all over the world. Every garment in our collection is completely original and most are crafted exclusively for Peruvian Connection. Our studio of talented designers creates everything from scratch-from the seasonal color palettes and custom dyes to the drawings and patterns. These intricate nit and woven designs are brought beautifully to life by highly skilled Andean artisans-craftswomen whose textile tradition goes back millennia. The gorgeous knit and woven pieces are made from luxury fibers native to the Andes-silky soft alpaca and Peruvian pima cotton. Although the core design inspiration springs from Peru, our varied collections celebrate ethnographic textiles from cultures all over the world.
