ABOUT THE ARTIST
Shupaca is creative collaboration of husband and wife tandem, Lori Perri and Andrew Schuster. Travelling off-the beaten track in Ecuador brought about an unexpected immersion to the vibrant socio-cultural heritage of South America, and the discovery of an extraordinary fabric called, Alpaca.
Forming a brand that combines their environment-conscious minds and their dedication to fair trade and responsible business practices, Shupaca combines the couple’s surname and their esteemed product of choice, Alpaca fur.
Alpaca is considered as one of the world’s most valuable natural fibers. Smooth as silk and cashmere, this light fabric also has a naturally insulating core that adequately warms up the body without weighing it down. It has even been once reserved for Incan Royalty. Alpaca comes in 22 natural colors that can easily be blended to produce a spectrum of colors ranging from nudes to brights, classic to fun and sharp.
Upholding this ancient tradition in fashion while injecting creative contemporary details, Shupaca works with South American artisans and their families to ensure products that exude indigenous quality while remaining fashionably relevant to the here and now. All products are hand woven on wood looms using the same methods that have been practiced for hundreds of years.
