Adriana is Peruvian, Laerke is Danish. Together they founded Ayni and launched their first collection in Paris in 2009. Ayni was created out of a common love for high quality products, nature’s finest materials and a strong social, economic and environmental engagement. The fashion pieces are designed and made in Peru, using only the most exclusive Peruvian materials such as the luxurious baby alpaca and the famous pima cotton. Additionally, the company also runs Ayni Certify to recognize the artisan work of Peruvian women in local communities and rural areas. Their motto is “all we knit is love” and you can see this in each of their carefully sourced collections.
