Lama fibre poncho
This poncho made of natural fibres (llama fibre 65%, new wool 35%) is both a classic and a contemporary piece of clothing that surmounts boundaries and time. The poncho is the most important handcrafted product on the Latin American continent using processes and techniques that are passed on from generation to the other. Its importance has grown so much that it can now be worn around the world.
The llamas come from the mountain valleys of the Andes in Argentina up to an altitude of 4000 m and are held by small producers. In the Puna communities of northwest Argentina, llamas are farmed and produced in small production systems and by producers with scarce economic and natural resources. The fibre from the producers is purchased from Warmi Sayajsunqo Association’s regional markets, respecting fair trade. Bei der Herstellung wird der Poncho Pampa maschinell gewebt und von Hand verarbeitet.
Antiallergisch – Warm – Flauschig – Atmungsaktiv – Schmutzabweisend
Diese edle und hochwertige Lamafaser zeichnet sich durch ihre besonderen Eigenschaften aus: Lamafaser besteht aus natürlichen Proteinen mit sehr geringen Lanolinanteil und Fett, daher ist sie hypoallergen. This fibre is also warm, light, resistant, water-repellent and has excellent insulating properties and also has a temperature-regulating effect. Finally, llama fibre is biodegradable. Bacteria cannot multiply on their surface and die. Schließlich ist Lamafaser biologisch abbaubar.
TASHAY cares about the environment:: the products made exclusively from natural fibres are 100% sustainable: the breeding practices use traditional methods. The camelids are sheared manually, avoiding the use of machines and harmful chemicals by using the natural colours of these fibres as the basis of our collections, which range from natural colour to black through various shades of gray and brown.
