A great place to shop for clothing in Sucre is Alpaca Andina.
The shop is dedicated to fair trade, and sources its products from several organisations:
- T’ika – a La Paz based women’s organization which produced all-natural 100% alpaca wool clothing and accessories. Andina is the only Bolivian outlet for these unique items.
- Da Bolsa Boliviana – created by Alpaca Andina itself, Da Bolsa provides employment opportunities to 7 youths from disadvantaged backgrounds (many come from the San Augustin orphanage). The youths design, create and sell a line of modern handbags fabricated with recycled Bolivian textiles.
- Villa Esperanza – an Oruro-based organization which produces 100% wool textiles colored naturally with dyes made from flowers and seeds.
The items on sale at Alpaca Andina are beautifully crafted and the style is both sophisticated and modern.
