The Story

Fringe's vision is to be a responsible organization that promotes the sustainable use of natural fibers of local origin such as alpaca, cotton, merino and blends, exporting products that are of the highest quality, sustainable, with standards of social responsibility and respect for the environment.

Fringe uses Original Peruvian cotton, known as Pima cotton, which stands apart as a superior variety compared to conventional cotton. Its distinction lies in its longer fibers, which contribute to a smoother fabric that is not only exceptionally soft to the touch but also remarkably resistant to wrinkles. Moreover, Pima cotton boasts exceptional durability, ensuring that the garments crafted from it remain in excellent condition even after repeated use and washing. This combination of luxurious comfort and robust longevity makes Pima cotton a choice material for those who appreciate both quality and style.

We take pride in using top-quality Peruvian Alpaca wool for our garments. Our commitment to sustainability is unwavering. We ensure that the wool harvesting process is environmentally responsible and doesn't harm the Alpaca herds or their habitats. When you choose our garments, you're not only getting the best in Alpaca wool quality but also supporting ethical and eco-friendly practices in fashion.
