Our Company


The Michell company

Today, Michell & Cía. S.A. is the parent company of Michell Group, Peru’s largest alpaca textile corporation, which encompasses everything from breeding alpacas to selling its fine products to consumers, with operations that include traditional manual sorting, aswell as modern combing, spinning and weaving plants.

The permanent contact with the demanding international market highlights the need to advance beyond the export of raw materials and in the 1940’s the dream becomes reality.
In 1947, Michell & Cía. set up its first combing and spinning plant in Peru and in so doing, created and established the standard for the Alpaca industry today, not just in Peru, but all over the world.
