Welcome to a multicolored world of fair fashion handmade in Peru! ANNAMRIAANGELIKA’s premium knitwear is characterized by the confluence of sustainability, lifestyle and design, while playfully creating a unique link between tradition and modernity. The brand is passionately dedicated to the slow fashion philosophy.
What we do is not about quantity, but about quality, longevity and attention to detail. We select the finest materials, so you can enjoy them for years to come. We grant our skilled knitters in Peru good working conditions and the necessary time to produce fashion of exceptional quality. No rush, no chasing of short-lived trends.
FAIR TRADE ﹣ What makes your brand Fair Trade and how do you ensure the Fair Trade production?
AT ANNAMARIAANGELIKA we are working very close with small family owned knitwear businesses. Our Peruvian manufactures are certified with the Peru Fair Trade Certificate.
SOCIAL JUSTICE ﹣ How do you ensure Social Justice with your internal and external corporate environment?
Social Justice is an natural part of ANNAMARIAANGELIKAs philosophy. We are mainly working with women and women lead teams in Peru. The empowerment of artisans and especially female artisans is one of our core values.
ORGANIC ﹣ Please list all ORGANIC materials you work with. What makes this material sustainable and better than conventional material?
At ANNAMARIAANGELIKA, it all comes down to the basic material, because without good material, none of the AMA garments would be what they are today. You can look anywhere, but you will not find synthetic materials in our products. For our collections we use 100% sustainable natural fibres. As a slow fashion label, we see it as our responsibility to make every piece as durable as possible by choosing only the best materials. On the other hand, at the end of their life, we want to reintegrate them into the biological cycle. We use Peruvian alpaca wool and Peruvian Cotton.
LOCAL ﹣ Where and why is your entire product collection produced locally?
At ANNAMARIAANGELIKA, we are aware of the fact that the logistics behind products poses a particular challenge. Our entire value chain for knitted goods is situated in Peru. From sourcing the raw materials till finishing the garment. Nothing is shipped back and forth between countries countless times.
HANDCRAFTED ﹣ How does the exact handcrafting process works?
Talent, passion and skill: This is what our Peruvian knitters bring to the fashion label ANNAMARIAANGELIKA. The pieces you see here would not be possible without them. All items are handmade one by one, details are carefully applied by hand as well.
ZERO WASTE ﹣ Which processes in your supply chain are zero waste?
All garments are manufactured according to the Zero Waste principle. That means they are knitted exactly to size – without any off cuts. This helps us to avoid waste and left-over materials. Any yarn left over is used to produce the next ANNAMARIAANGELIKA piece and is then completely recycled.
GIVE BACK ﹣ Why is it important for your brand to Give Back and for which organization are you donating?
ANNAMARIAANGELIKA made a conscious decision to make up for the damage caused by shipping our pieces, and so we support the Peruvian conservation organisation GaiAma that was established to help protect the rain forest. 2% of each sold AMA piece are donated to GaiAma.
