By Peruvian fashion brand Cornelio Borda by Renata García-Menacho.

Cornelio Borda's designs come to life through a collaborative process bridging Peru and Italy, with production centered in Peru and involving specialists from both countries. This underscores our unwavering commitment to sustainability, emphasizing the repurposing of waste materials and aligning with the principles upheld by sustainable non-fast fashion brands.

Our Alpaca Carpet line consciously steers clear of any use of animal fur, instead incorporating Alpaca wool and, in certain models, Pima Cotton yarn sourced from excess clothing production in Peru. Using this yarn, we meticulously handcraft a unique carpet, stitching it with care. The finished product undergoes hand-brushing to achieve a soft texture and appearance for our shoes and bags. The initial trials of this embroidery technique commenced several years ago with artisans from the Marche Region in Italy. Following this successful endeavor, we extended this innovative practice by collaborating with skilled female artisans from Peru. Each artisan dedicates one day to embroider two pairs of our handmade Alpaca shoes. Explore our collection, featuring Alpaca bags, and join us in advocating for sustainable practices within the fashion industry.
