Brand Story

Inspired by the lives of indigenous people, we develop fashion with a purpose. Each of our artworks tells a unique story about life in harmony with Mother Nature. For us, our knitters are artists. We consider each of our designs to be a work of art. It is simply a matter of course for us that we produce 100% in the country of origin. We are guided by traditional production methods of indigenous people, all our pieces are carefully handmade. In the best possible harmony with nature, we create limited collections with a purpose. Achiy – designed by another life.


Humanity: No unfair working conditions and exploitative contracts. No anonymity. Simply respectful and fair cooperation. Partnerships at eye level – that is what we stand for. Our sourcing partner in Peru is Fair Trade certified and part of the Fashion Revolution.

Naturalness: The fashion industry often overlooks the unique materials Mother Nature gives. We think it is time to change this. We use only natural materials and follow resource-saving traditional manufacturing techniques. Our yarn manufacturer is GOTS, OEKO-TEX 100 and USDA Organic certified.

Honesty: For us, transparency equals honesty. We tell you the full story. Just visit

We at ACHIY keep the traditional knitting expertise of the Peruvian communities alive. Textile art has always been a social event. A possibility to create something together with the family, friends and the community. The traditional knitting techniques are passed on from generation to generation.

We are guided by traditional production methods of indigenous people. Therefore, all our pieces are carefully handmade in the best possible harmony with nature. We use only natural materials. Our first collection consists of 100% alpaca wool that is naturally dyed with plants from the Peruvian Highlands. Our sourcing and and yarn manufacturer are certified with: AZO, OEKO-TEX and REACH, GOTS and OEKO-TEX 100.

All our sweaters are made completely in the family workshops of Rubén and Carmen in Cusco – by hand with traditional knitting machines and, of course, 100% baby alpaca wool.

ACHIY works only with 100% natural materials. Our first collection consists of 100% alpaca wool knitwear products. As every design is handknitted, we can carefully plan the exact quantities and have almost zero left over yarns. We produce in small-series with a "limitation" approach. Each product is considered to be a work of art that is made to last for a lifetime.

Not only our sweaters themselves, but also our shipping packages have a purpose. RePack reduces CO2 emissions by 80%. As a reward for returning the RePacks we will donate 2€ to our good friends in the Kinsacchocha Community in Paru Paru, Cusco.

The production of our garments is not just about fashion. It’s about the people who create our handmade works of art with incredible passion, their stories and their lives. The unity of the family is at the forefront.
