Brand: Samantha Holmes. Designed in England, made in rural Peru.
Samantha Holmes' love of luxury fabrics started when she worked for a small international trading company that imported cashmere from Nepal. In 2003 she launched her own Alpaca label after she travelled to Peru to source and network with small producer groups who helped her to produce her own exclusive collection of handcrafted luxury gifts, babywear, fashion accessories and home-ware.
Samantha Holmes is committed to fair trade. She visits her network of hand-knitters in rural Peru where unemployment is very high yearly, ensuring that they are fairly remunerated and that they knit for no more than 5 hours per day.
