With the aim of creating more green areas and raising awareness among the population with regard to environmental problems in the city of Arequipa, the Ecological Patrol held its third annual Ecological Marathon. The event attracted more than 1200 runners, whose participation led to the obtaining of approximately 3200 new trees.
We are very proud to announce to the Inca Tops family and to all our clients that after our successful participation in the 2015 Pitti Filati trade exhibition in Florence, Italy, the trend forecaster WGSN has included us in its “luxury classics” trend forecast for 2016/2017 with our alpaca yarn in subtle mixed colors.
For the 10th consecutive year we have taken part in the Pitti Filati textile fair held in Florence, Italy.
We should like to let the entire Inca Tops family and all our customers know that it was an extremely satisfying event in several ways.
Following our principle of responsible operation, care for and commitment to the natural environment, Inca Tops S.A. has been awarded the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certificate, which certifies that our yarns are free from any harmful substances, and meet the all the requirements for use by human beings, including babies.
Since the Pacomarca genetic improvement center was inaugurated in 2000, its staff, together with the technicians at Inca Tops, embarked on an ambitious long-term selection program plus a series of experiments aimed at improving the yield of alpaca fiber, including shearing and fleece-handling techniques.
Inca Tops S.A. was founded in Arequipa in 1965 and, from the outset, its underlying philosophy was one of harmonising its production processes with nature, long before the concept became as widespread as it is today. Indeed, it adopted a company slogan to underline this.
The Alpaca Fiesta 2014 took place in the Cerro Juli Conventions Centre after a seven-year interval, and was an enormous success. More than 60 exhibitors from Peru's alpaca-producing regions closed business deals for a total of 18 million USD with purchasers from three continents, comfortably surpassing the target of 15 million USD.
