Frisenvang

FROM PERU TO DENMARK

Our small company Frisenvang was established in 2014 to give Danes and Europeans an easier access to quality products from Peru and at the same time to support the living conditions of small local Peruvian producers (see more under The good cause). The Frisenvang assortment of products, are based on Peruvian woven and knitted products made from 100% baby alpaca wool, elected to fit a Nordic and European taste of colours and design.

Why Peru?

Peru is a palette of strong colours ranging from the deep brown, black, white and green in the mountains to the strong orange, pink and fluorescent blue found in the local flowers and fruits. The South American country holds incredible beauty of nature and is inhabited by a loving and openhearted population. Peru holds a strong historical tradition for producing quality handicrafts of alpaca wool, which are seen clearly in the unique products, that we have selected for our Frisenvang assortment.

The products

Frisenvang’s key product is handspun sustainable hand knitting yarn produced by a small cooperative in Marcapata (see more under The good cause). But Frisenvang also offers woven products and knitted clothes. Frisenvang supports the possible growth and living conditions of local producers by selling their products in Europe and the rest of the world.
All Frisenvang’s products are based on 100% baby alpaca wool, due to its softness, warmth and strength. You can read more about the Peruvian alpaca and its qualities here The Alpaca.
