The Story Behind The Brand:
The idea was born during a surf trip to South America. Due to a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake in the Province Steph and Kyle Taylor were located in, they decided to take a long motorcycle trip up into the Andean mountain range and away from the damaged coastline. Here, they discovered all the beautiful alpaca fiber from this region and quickly fell in love with the idea of building a sustainable business around it.
They dreamt of creating something that wasn’t size or gender specific, it would have no expiry date. It would be passed on for generations. It would become a MEANINGFUL POSSESSION. A few days later they embarked on a fourteen hour bus ride to the South where they put their dream in motion. They spent the entire duration of the ride sketching out their business plan on children’s notepads that they picked up from the local market.
The notes on the paper that day read; “We will not sacrifice who we are and what we believe in. This is a story about staying true to our vision and sticking to our belief systems. Working with eco-friendly materials, or better yet, not working with man made synthetic fibers. Making sure we are contributing to the solution and not to the problem. Utilizing, in our opinion, one of the most underused and underrated fabrications in the world, and turning it into something beautiful, that we are proud of. We will only work with people who inspire us and people we trust, believe in and truly care about”
