The Cuyana Essential Fabrics

The Cuyana Essential Fabrics

We craft our beloved textiles with integrity and kindness from the highest-quality materials sourced from around the world. Learn about the love and care that goes into our essential fabrics.

Alpaca

Alpaca

Our baby alpaca is made from the softest, finest fibers on adult alpacas by our partners in Peru. Our Peruvian partners are like family, and each piece is hand-woven to perfection by their skilled artisans. The alpacas have adapted fur that is thermal but never hot, to endure the disparate day and night temperatures. Our baby alpaca is likewise warm and breathable as well as water-resistant, strong, hypoallergenic, environmentally-friendly, snag and wrinkle-resistant.

Cashmere

Cashmere

Our cashmere collection is composed of two types, woven cashmere from Scotland and knitted cashmere crafted in Italy. Our family owned suppliers in Italy and Scotland deliver their finest cashmere to Cuyana. These cashmeres are substantial, soft, eight times as insulating as sheep wool, and of the highest quality. They are essential to making our knits so incredibly comfortable and beautiful.

Poplin

Poplin

Crisp yet impossibly soft, exquisite Turkish cotton-poplin fabric is an important part of the Cuyana arsenal. The rich fibers are of the utmost quality and weight, ensuring it is soft yet substantial enough to achieve thoughtfully tailored lines. It gives a fresh, light feel to our foundational pieces.

Silk

Silk

Our Chinese silks are created by a carefully selected leading factory in China whose precise attention to detail matches our own. Every step in our silk production process is completed in close proximity, reducing our carbon footprint and creating less harmful waste. These silks are of a higher momme count (the weight of silk), two times the quality of comparably priced silks. They wear beautifully, drape naturally and stand the test of time.

Pima Cotton

Pima Cotton

The impossibly soft pima cotton sourced from Peru is a beloved Cuyana fabric. The heritage craftsmanship of Peru specializes in artisanal plant-based dyes, hand-applied embroideries, and handmade knits. The feel is elegant and the look is easy and relaxed. We create our pima pieces in pure pima and pima blends perfected for each unique set of products.
