Pakucho tm

Naturally pigmented cotton and fine textiles have been produced for nearly five millennia in Peru, constituting the oldest recorded tradition of spinning and weaving in human history.  Over a decade of ethnographic, botanical and archaeological research by the Native Cotton Project of Peru, trademarked in 1994 as Pakucho, has led to the identification of pre-Columbian farming techniques for sustained cotton harvesting and environmental resource management. As steward of this unique genetic resource, Pakucho has recovered a wide range of naturally colored cotton fiber, including cream, beige, brown, rust, chocolate, mauve, green and other earthy tones. No dyes, chemicals or other synthetic processes have been used to grow, soften, or color the fibers of these original fabric creations.
