Yapa

 means “an added bonus, a gift given by the merchant to the client as a sign of appreciation”. That is the intent of Yapa, to give a sustainable gift from the Andes to the world.

The goods are inspired by Andean vibes and combine traditional craftsmanship with modern and fun designs. They create 100% alpaca sweaters of superior quality, with sustainable methods, that are cozy, lightweight, and unique. Yapa´s mission is to be an agent of change. They aim to challenge the status quo and push boundaries to make stylish products in a way that is fit for the world we live in today: Beautiful, sustainable, and responsibly made.

They are demonstrating that a 100% responsible business practice is the only way to do business and the source of the materials is key to that concept. For guidance, Yapa turns to the experience of artisans, whose skills have been handed down from generation to generation with a real desire to keep ancient traditions alive and support Bolivian communities. The founder and creative director, Bernarda, cherishes her natural bond with her native country and believes in giving back, which is why Yapa’s priority is to work with local Bolivian artisans in the making of products.
