It is the world's finest natural fiber! Wrap yourself in the sheer luxury of this super-lightweight scarf in the classic Vicuña color, a rich golden caramel hue that exudes timeless sophistication. Despite its feather-light feel, it offers unparalleled warmth, making it an essential accessory for the discerning individual.
Vicuñas, native to the Andean plains, are revered for their sumptuous fiber, a distinction shared by neither alpacas nor llamas. These wild creatures, protected by law, are not domesticated due to their reluctance to reproduce in captivity.
Ethically Sourced and Sustainable:
The trade in the fiber sheared from the Vicuña is strictly regulated under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). The acquisition of Vicuña wool adheres to stringent ethical standards, as it is obtained solely through shearing, conducted annually by local rural communities. This process ensures the animal's well-being, as it is released unharmed post-shearing. Moreover, Vicuñas are sheared in accordance with ancient traditions, such as the Chaku ritual, deeply rooted in Incan heritage, symbolizing a harmonious coexistence between humans and nature.
We take pride in partnering with one of only three authorized processors of Vicuña fiber, ensuring the highest standards of authenticity and sustainability, and QINTI is duly registered under CITES to import this exclusive fiber.
Each Vicuña scarf is presented in a luxurious wooden box and accompanied by a CITES certificate of authenticity, guaranteeing its exclusivity and ethical sourcing.
A must-have for those who appreciate the finest things in life!
