Graciela Huam takes its heritage and inspiration from The Netherlands and Peru, countries that inform and guide our work. We combine the vibrant Peruvian culture with the Dutch avant-garde design and our colours are powered by the landscapes of both.
Our products are designed in The Netherlands and Peru and created in the Andes in Puno, using only the most exclusive Peruvian materials such as the luxurious Alpaca and the famous Pima Cotton. We represent a breakdown of folkloric and classic knitwear made by Andean and coastal raw materials in Peru, turning knitwear collections in minimal designs employing neutral and pigment colors, traditional raw materials and risky shapes and elements.
Our journal started in the department of Puno in Peru, located in the south of the country. This place is characterized by its natural resources, its working people and the majestic landscape of Lake Titicaca. Grace was involved in the natural beauty of the city, the impressive knitting work of the craftspeople and the high Andean plateau of alpacas.
All our garments are made by passionate and skilled Peruvian craftspeople. This results in beautiful and high quality garments in a contemporary, prêt-a-porter style, creating versatile collections of knitwear.
Graciela Huam is committed to partnering with local entrepreneur artisans and small business. We are working in partnership with a first manufacturer, a group certified with the principles of fair trade led by Maritza and her group of 60 talented artisans.
Our design work is founded on respect for nature, universal human rights and economic justice. We follow the principals of responsible and sustainable production, using traditional methods in order to achieve quality that is superior to industrially made products. We believe in social respect, education and sustainability for our communities in Peru.
Knitwear will always be a good investment, and just like a work of art can create a truly iconic end result. The choice of fabrics and production of our knitted garments combined with this unique technique will reveal to you the high dedication and passion we feel for our work.
