Here at Vicuña Royale we believe that a fine fibre such as vicuña should be showcased. This is why we have taken great care to marry the finest skilled Italian weaving with traditional British craftsmanship to create truly unique products.
The beauty of this fibre is quality; the fibre is put through time-honoured processes to complement its capabilities. We work to the fibre’s versatile properties, celebrating the tradition linked with the fibre and its rarity. Time and dedication goes into every piece from the first stage of shearing to the final stitch on the garment.
And we do all of this whilst being committed to the continued conservation of the vicuña. We are passionate about the ancient history of this precious animal and we want to tell the world.
Our fibre is sourced from Peru, where the vicuña is sheared once every two years in an ancient ceremony originating in Inca times. The local communities use age old tradition to heard and shear the vicuña, before releasing them unhurt into the wild. With each vicuña only able to produce one pound of fibre a year, the fibre is one of the world’s most precious luxuries.
Our fibre is then spun in Italy, at a mill which has a proud history of quality and tradition. In fact, the town around the mill was created just for the employees, meaning the mill is at the centre of the community.
Communities come together in order to shear the fibre and spin our yarn. Quality is ensured when people are passionate about what they do, they go the extra mile to ensure perfection. This is why we are so passionate about this unique journey which every one of our products goes through.
Our quality yarn is then brought to the UK, where we weave our final products using age-old methods. Using traditional techniques and people who are masters of their trade, we are able to create products which are personal to each and every client.
A fibre which was once only allowed to be worn by royalty deserves this attention to detail.
Our finished garments are then packaged in our specially designed boxes, complete with the client’s name and unique license code.
