I'm Arlette and set this business up with a vision of creating simple versatile quality garments for people to wear everyday, all over the world. We work with artisans in Peru working exclusively with the supreme natural fibre, alpaca.
Why? I am passionate about keeping their traditional craftsmanship alive where the artisans have the expertise of working with the suprement natural fibre, alpaca. In turn, we are encouraging international trade and export, advocating alpaca as the ultimate fibre to work with which is sustainable, ethical, biodegrable and renewable!
The result being feel good Arlette Lee - Ruanas which feel great, as well as supporting a community of artisans. Preserving nature with style.

Follow the #Instagram journey as I take you back to where it all began. The mountain climb is tough but after a lot of climbing, I'm on the right path and excited where the journey goes.

I would love your support on this challenging climb to the top.

Every vote is much appreciated and sharing is caring. Arlette Lee the Ruana crusader.

Thank you very much
