In many places, the concept has degenerated into empty promises, showmanship and marketing gimmicks. In our point of view sustainability is the oldest and at the same time the most modern production principle. For us, it is the matter of course it should be – if you ask the world and the environment.
PACABAMBA - A company that does not produce mess!
From the very beginning it was clear that PACABAMA can only exist if our products are not at the expense of nature, not at the expense of mankind and not at the expense of both their future. This attitude makes us a company that does not produce on mass, but in advance order. Only a very small part of our products are in stock in Germany. Otherwise we produce mainly on demand in order not to use up resources unnecessarily.
Tradition and knowledge lives on in PACABAMBA
100% sustainability also means 100% Peru for us. The natural raw materials such as wool and dying materials as well as the ancient craftsmanship of weaving and dyeing, which make up our products, come from here. This is where the people come from, whose livelihoods are threatened by cheap and mass-produced industrial goods and who now let their traditions and knowledge live on in PACABAMA. With fair payment and self-determined working conditions, of course.
With their pronounced solidarity with nature, our Peruvian friends and partners make it clear how right and sensible the principle of sustainability is - and how much we have lost it in many parts of the world. From appreciative animal husbandry to the use of purely natural dyes and the impressive longevity of the products, their sense for the far-sighted use of resources is shown.
With PACABAMBA we have actually succeeded in doing what is important to all of us who are behind it. The combination of material and moral quality. The demonstration of the impressive properties of alpaca wool. The transparency that we cultivate in all processes. And the creation and preservation of real values. In this way we succeed in creating a feeling of well-being on the skin and a good feeling in the soul, which are the expression of a true awareness of quality.
