We work together with excellent artisans and companies in Bolivia that support our desire to export high-quality Bolivian products to the world purely because we believe in the talent and skills of our people when creating unique and high-quality pieces.
WaraYana means “The star that comes from far away” in a native language of Bolivia.
Bolivia is the source and inspiration of this project. Inspired by the country’s culture and trends, we want to offer you unique high-quality products through a completely ethical supply process.
WaraYana has a commitment to contribute to the livelihoods of many low-income Bolivian families, bringing together projects involving different local communities and companies. Our partners and suppliers support local workshops that apply ancestral knowledge and techniques, and, at the same time, prepares them to handle the highest quality materials and machinery, creating networks of self-managed groups that produce directly for brands around the world.
Warayana and the projects that it groups, work together with exclusive fibres like Alpaca, Baby Alpaca, Alpaca Suri, Baby Suri and Vicuña, all of them considered as luxury fibres in the world of fashion and recognised for their high quality and softness.
The producers of these fibres develop sustainable and responsible farming of camelids native of the Andean region in the south of Bolivia and in part of the border with Peru.
Their management represents an income for many families who coexist with these animals and share the same flora and fauna.
We trust the Andean communities of our country that work hard to boost their family economies. And, as a result of this effort, Tesoro Andino is born as the final step of the “Qutapiqiña” project, whose initial phase was to raise awareness and empower the community about the process of shearing and farming vicuñas in a sustainable way, preserving the environment. Qutapiqiña ultimately led to the elaboration of a unique vicuña clothes brand (Tesoro Andino) that became the first brand to comply with Bolivian regulations and to receive the authorisation to be exported.
