Beautiful handcrafts that don't cost the earth

Artisans selling under the Allpa name are considered luxury designers, constantly developing new and cutting-edge styles. In return for this expertise, Allpa provides access to the international market, providing producers with a reliable source of income.

A modern weaver in the Andes, Celestino started weaving for Allpa in 2001, from his backyard with a very rustic loom.

Today he lives on the outskirts of Huancayo and employs a team of people.  Celestino is proud to say that his textiles travel around the world and reach homes in Europe, North America, Japan and Australia.
