Taken from Alpaca, raised in the Andes Mountains of Peru, in an area whose altitude exceeds 4,000 meters. Said to once contain over 40 colors, and even today having over 20 classifications of color, alpacas of this region are characterized by their abundance of natural coat colors. Among those, the rarest of all the colors - the hairs of the black alpaca - are used as is, woven into a fabric that has an incomparable deep, rich brown color.
These hairs are brought from Peru to be made into yarn at a spinning mill in Ichinomiya, Aichi Prefecture, which are then woven on Schonherr looms also located in Ichinomiya; from which they are then taken to be processed at a textile factory that specializes in animal hair in Izumiotsu City, Osaka Prefecture.
This fabric which remains undyed and retains its natural colors - in addition to being environmentally friendly in that it does not use the waters, dyes, or heavy oils required in normal dyeing processes - is finished with a pleasant touch that brings out the original texture of its source material.
