There is something ancestral in the relationship between people and land. At Tejido, we want people to question the origin of their apparel. Our products include heirloom knitwear, ponchos, & wraps made by master craftsmen/women in Peru. Tejido’s designs value the indigenous traditions that respect the native lands, the natural fibers, and slow weaving & knitting process to produce fashion that is art. We aim to create heirloom clothing that can be passed down from generation to generation. We design classic silhouettes that are timeless and multi-season, encouraging the idea of less is more when buying handcrafted apparel from Peru.
