Our journey begins in a land far away, and high above the clouds, it is known as the birthplace of the sun. At 13,000 feet above sea level, in the rugged Andes, near Lake Titicaca, Peru, knitting has been a proud tradition for the Quechua and Aymara people for centuries.
Peru has the longest continuous textile record in the world, these unique toys are made using techniques that date back almost 10,000 years. Peruvian fiber manipulation began with simple spun fibers, moved on through cords and nets, and eventually developed into complex weaving, including practically every technique known today.
Named after agriculturalist Don Fermin Tanguis, Tanguis Cotton was first discovered and documented on the southern coast of Peru in 1908. Tanguis Cotton is of exceptional quality because of its soft touch, strength, excellent absorption, and high dye affinity.
Since ancient times, Peru has boasted some of the highest quality indigenous cottons in the world. The length, strength and fineness of local cotton ensure the highest quality textiles. The specific climate and soil conditions make Peruvian cotton seeds yield the longest stems in the world, which coupled with perfect balance between resistance and fineness, make for some of the best regarded materials in the textile industry.
Peruvian master-artisans draw from the world’s oldest textile tradition, creating intricate, detailed textile designs with knowledge that stretches back a far as time... Only their hands can create the worlds finest, safe and natural plush toys.
