ABOUT OUR PRODUCTS
S U S T A I N A B L E
Our products are 100% sustainable. The process has no negative impact on the environment because all our resources are taken from nature and from the same place where people live.
O R G A N I C
The materials our textiles are made from are 100% organic. The communities maintain their own alpacas, llamas, or sheep and shear them once a year. The wool production process involves no chemicals. The colours are 100% natural, derived from plants and flowers.
H A N D W O V E N
All our products are 100% handwoven by Aymara and Quechua communities. In some regions, weaving is primarily a women's activity where they express their feelings and emotions through colors and symbols. They use weaving to tell stories about their families and generations. In other areas, such as Puno, this craft is predominantly done by men, as it is seen as a way to court or win the affection of women.
All our products are made from these mantas or aguayos textiles. We collaborate with artisan families and a fair trade organization to transform the original pieces into modern accessories.
Keeping ancestral traditions alive..
About our products..
Every one of our products is carefully designed by Piera Ceresa, and we offer them in limited quantities. Our stock typically ranges from just 1 to 4 pieces of each product, ensuring their exclusivity.
Our textiles are meticulously handwoven using one of the oldest weaving techniques, a tradition passed down for thousands of years from one generation to the next by the Aymara and Quechua indigenous communities. The symbols and colors incorporated in these textiles hold specific cultural significance related to the regions where they are crafted.
At Piera Ceresa, we blend our ancestral textiles with organic materials, including cotton, linen, and silk. We proudly avoid the use of any synthetic sources, maintaining a commitment to all-natural materials.
