Feel the Hands of the Andes
Francis O. Patthey
Fundador del Grupo Inca
KUNA is an accomplishment of Grupo Inca and Mr. Françis O. Patthey, committed to produce high quality garments by using the art and magic of the millenary Peruvian textile legacy, recreated as an Avant-garde proposal that employs a selected assortment of camelid fibres, the best ones of the world, while promoting a conscious use of the resources to protect each species, and preserving valuable ancestral knowledge. KUNA combines all these components with cutting-edge technology while developing its own techniques to offer a truly original treasure to the world. KUNA. Feel the hands of the Andes.
KUNA is more than just a name, it is the encounter of two different eras and worlds: The past, through the inspiration taken from rich aesthetic expressions and techniques of ancient Andean cultures; and the present, through the hands of highly skilled designers, who select each colour and create each design to give new life to our roots.
Every KUNA garment is not only an extraordinarily soft product manufactured with the best alpaca, vicuña, llama and guanaco fibres; they are also a reflection of the importance of protecting, breeding, and improving these species, and the efforts put into preserving the Andean communities and their invaluable knowledge and culture.
KUNA offers the design world a style that evokes and expresses the work of nature, a fabulous legacy and extraordinary human skills; which are transformed into a unique and captivating contemporary expression.
KUNA. Feel the Hands of the Andes.
