The Inoue Brothers. . . AW-2010

Looking to Latin America as their main source of inspiration and material, the Inoue Brothers AW-collection brings traditional Bolivian knits. Forming a unique collaboration with the people of Bolivia to create hand-knitted Alpaca garments. All professional knitters are artisan mothers working from home, unable to leave for a city job due to family commitments.

Bringing together extraordinary products come together for the everyday individual. The Inou brothers incorporated the material to their designs, which can be easily seen in today's market.

The alpaca is a South American member of the camel family. Alpacas have been domesticated for over 5,000 years by the Indians of South America, for their exceptional fine-fibred wool. Alpaca Fleece is soft and contains no lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic. The unique hollow core of the fibre gives the wool a natural insulation that keeps in or lets out body heat according to body warmth and the temperature of the surrounding environment.
