Inspirations from Peruvian Connection

The Peruvian Connection company was started as a mail order business specializing in textiles made from the luxury fibers of alpaca and pima cotton.  According to Wikipedia, Annie Hurlbut visited Peru and found a sweater with an alpaca fur-lined collar for her Mother’s birthday.  Biddy Hurlbut showed that sweater to a buyer who wanted 45 more.

I’m always on the lookout for handmade textiles and Peruvian Connection works with cottage industries in Peru.  These artisans make beautiful items by hand.  If you are interested, take a look at the Peruvian Connection websites for the US, UK and Germany, as well as their blog at

These bags and accessories are creative and full of detail:

My favorites are the Floral Skirt from 2008, Pima Cotton Doily Scarf and the Bella Cardigan:

I know you’ll find something to inspire you!
