About

Andrea Oneto created Alpaca Samka to rescue the British textile heritage link between the UK and Chile. Her collections are based on the history of British immigrants from Patagonian sheep ranches, the Pacific port of Valparaíso and the potash saltpetre mines of the Atacama Desert (especially Humberstone) producing hand-woven sustainable luxury soft, lightweight alpaca garments in a wide range of natural colours.
