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

Cornelio Borda designs take shape through a collaborative process between Peru and Italy, and the actual production occurs in Peru, involving specialists from both countries. This highlights our dedication to sustainability, focusing on repurposing waste materials and aligning with the principles of sustainable non-fast fashion brands.

Our Alpaca Carpet line intentionally avoids the use of animal fur, incorporating Alpaca wool and, in some models, Pima Cotton yarn sourced from the surplus of clothing production in Peru. Using this yarn, we meticulously craft a distinctive carpet, stitching it by hand. The finished product is then hand-brushed to achieve a soft texture and appearance for our shoes and bags. The initial trials of this embroidery technique took place several years ago with artisans from the Marche Region in Italy. Following this, we continued the practice by collaborating with talented female artisans from Peru. Each artisan devotes one day to embroider two pairs of our handmade Alpaca shoes. Explore our collection, including Alpaca bags, and join us in promoting sustainable practices within the fashion industry.
