Preserve and promote the nugget of local craftsmanship
More than 15 years creating at the same Peruvian workshops.
At Anonym Apparel, we feel honoured to work with small production workshops in Peru, the quintessential producer of Pima cotton – also known as “the Andean silk”- and Alpaca wool.
Functionality, durability and comfort, as well as being an alternative to industrial production distinguish our products.
This close relationship with our manufacturers allows us to make the historical craftsmanship live on and to demand higher quality standards.
DESIGNED IN FRANCE
Based at the southwest of France, on the coast of Les Landes, we work on future collections ourselves.
The collections are designed beforehand according to the trend guidelines put together by style studios in Paris, particularly when it comes to colour ranges.
We imagine and design the styles in collaboration with the multi-brand retail professionals who live for fashion and offer you daily advice.
Besides focusing on quality, we aim to work with partners who share our vision and values.
Beyond the brand, there is a whole handcraft ecosystem growing with us.
Alpaca fibre is original from the Peruvian Altiplano and it is manufactured at Maritza’s workshop in Lima. The family workshop, which once belonged to his father, was created around thirty years ago.
He started with just three workers, but these days his team has grown and a myriad of
satellite workshops collaborate in his project, giving life to a local economic, craftsmanship net.
We have been working together with his workshop since 2005 and we are very attached to their skills, honesty and flexibility.
We have worked on Pima cotton with Michèle since 2010. An ex-architect, she has been an enthusiast of this material for more than 10 years. Michèle has become much more than a simple partner; she’s a friend.
Dynamic, courageous and gifted with a powerful sense for art, she collaborates on collections to come. Michèle is our link to the workshops in Lima, which have over 50 years of experience. She is our project manager.
The cotton comes from the Northeast of Peru, in the Piura area. The work remains handcrafted; every piece is cut and assembled by hand.
We have always given priority to partnerships with small production workshops, more in tune with our philosophy and needs.
