A Non Profit Civil Association
The Mirasol project started in 2006 as a joint initiative with clients close to our company with the aim of improving the living conditions of disadvantaged children in the highlands of the Peruvian Andes, especially the impoverished children of Alpaca shepherds. Mirasol helps them gain access to proper education and health. This is achieved by investing a percentage of yarn sales in the establishment and operation of a school-home. We are proud of the fact that this project is now a reality.
NATIONAL ART CONTEST
Since 1981, Michell y Cía. S.A. has invited hundreds of artists every year to the oldest art competition in Peru, which focuses today on
traditional textile art, still alive in Andean communities, making this event, without a doubt, the most important in Peru in the artistic field, and one of the most remarkable across the Americas.
Ancient culture preservation
SOL ALPACA and the Amano Museum Foundation join forces to rescue the fantastic Peruvian textile industry, a sign of true wonder and value for humanity. It is through the development of a sophisticated line of accessories, inspired by the wonderful textiles of pre-Columbian cultures, that we contribute to the support of the Amano Textile Museum, which is dedicated to the conservation, research and exhibition of the materials it holds.
