Bolivia: Knitwear from llama wool
A Danish fashion company and a Bolivian llama fibre processing company formed a joint venture that has invested in a modern knitwear manufacturing workshop, equipment for sub-contractors and WRAP certification. Advance Consulting assisted the partners to develop the project proposal and business plan and has been involved in the project’s implementation.
Aiayu ApS is a Danish fashion company that designs and sells llama-fibre knitwear to the high-end market in Europe. The knitwear is produced in Bolivia in cooperation with Altifibers S.A. from El Alto, La Paz. Altifibers is the only company in the world that can process llama fibre thanks to their proprietary dehairing technology.
