Abouts
ARGUA is a textile company specializing in clothing accessories and homeware products made of pure and blended alpaca fiber. The South American camelids are famous for their high quality fibers, and produce the very best products that Peru has to offer. Each and every one of our products combines huge human effort, respect for nature, and care for the environment.

ARGUA has a vertical integration, based on organic growth. It’s a fully integrated textile company, driven by research and innovation. It embodies a culture of excellence from the selection of raw materials right the way through each step of the manufacturing process to the post-sale of the final product, enabling extremely high levels of customer satisfaction.  

Company

ARGUA’s commitment is to create high quality handicrafts, made with natural fibers that evoke history, continuing the ancient art of Peruvian textile traditions, one of the richest and most vibrant textile legacies in the world.   The magical world of the Alpaca, the natural colors, textures, and forms have created a ancestral textile heritage that includes manual skills and ancient secrets.
 
ARGUA creates designs that reflects its own identity, and has begun the international expansion of the brand, preserving the natural environment and the native communities from which the fibers derive.   The main exponents of this wonderful tradition are breeders and artisans, inhabitants of the Andes who today grant us the privilege of offering our collection to the world with a unique value proposition, a true Peruvian treasure.
 
ARGUA is distinguished by quality, tradition, authenticity, and innovation, and upholds an avant-garde, fresh and modern image through its use of textures, shapes and colors, creating an exotic warmth capable of evoking feelings that nourish the spirit; through the use of natural fibers; a commitment to Fair Trade and sustainability; care and respect for the environment; and guided by conscience.   Through its network of distribution channels, ARGUA has the ability to export to anywhere in the world.
