The VITAL team, after three years of research, in the mountains of the Andes, has recovered the design of the vests that the shepherds of the Andes use and weave by hand.

This vest, like all the weaving handmade by this community of weavers, is a piece of the highest quality for its entire artisanal process. The alpaca wool used to knit this piece comes from the mountains of this place. The different shades of the fabric are all natural, obtained by a meticulous selection of wool from different alpacas. 3 alpaquitas association from Marcapata are the weavers of the vest.

The alpaca fiber is spun by hand with the traditional spindle and according to a very careful technique passed down from generation to generation. Once the yarn is made, according to the different shades of the alpaca fiber, the weaver begins to knit it. As this is a completely manual process, a vest may require, more than two months of dedication.
