Quilla Wasi is a group of peruvian artisans that represents the link between textile tradition and global commerce, creating handcrafted items under the rule of fair trade, this is then called ‘ethical fashion’.
It all started with discovery trips to the inner provinces of Peru, falling in love with the textile variety, with their everyday stories told by hands weaving words in color and fabric.
From that moment we decided to create a collective aiming to share the life of a community with the whole world, transferring the textile habits to nowadays fashion, creating modern pieces which nevertheless tell a rich history, all made by artisans.
Legend of Quilla Wasi
They say that love always leaves a mark.
They say that the sun and the moon were forbidden to love each other by the gods, and that one day they escaped creating the first sun eclipse. A unique moment in time when the two biggest starts could be together.
Both starts would never meet again, the sun-forsaken moon left behind her children at the Titicaca lake setting the foundation of our great civilization: The incas.
Quilla Wasi means “House of the moon”, its legacy of this legend.
