Our Fall-Winter 18/19 Collection seeks to bring down the ‘walls’ that have separated people with the passage of time and draws inspiration not only from Peru but from the entire world; the collection expresses the idea that we share a common origin through the use of Andean symbols and African masks combined with turquoise tones that kindle recollections of our journeys among oriental civilizations; and it reflects fresh energy with details bestowed by our land.

We acknowledge the beauty of Andean culture amid the features of other civilizations and we express it in a mixture of designs and colors which characterize our garments and accessories and bring you closer to the textile and handcrafting diversity of our Andean heritage.

The Amano Museum was founded in 1964 by the initiative of the Japanese businessman Yoshitaro Amano, to preserve the cultural heritage so that it can be admired for next generations to come. Located in one of the first buildings that were designed as a museum, it soon became one of the most important exhibition spaces for Peruvian Textile art.
