Founded in Lima, Peru in 1982, husband and wife team Rosa Kukurelo and Hugo Vargas created Manos del Peru to live out a young girl’s dream of following in her mother’s footsteps. Thanks to our timeless creations that attract lifelong customers, our family-owned and operated company has been successful for over three decades.

From day one, Manos del Peru became one of the first companies to export luxury apparel made with the finest natural fibers available in Peru. Today, we are proud to be one of the largest producers of handmade fashion in the world. Each piece celebrates the luxurious quality of alpaca, baby alpaca and pima cotton, with pride and dedication woven in.

From our hands to yours,
