Folk x Inoue Brothers
The Inoue Brothers, Saturo and Kiyo, have been friends of Folk for over 10 years. We have always been inspired by their dedication to champion indigineous production from South America.
For Autumn Winter 2016 we got together to produce a small capsule collection made in Peru to present their work at its purest. The wool used for the collaboration is 100% natural alpaca and despite the two colour-ways, the wool is non-dyed. Both colours are pure beige and brown, which in the past was only achievable by blending various colours making it a melange yarn.
The two colours are the actual colours of the animal and by using non-dyed yarn the garments have an unparalelled softness compared to dyed yarn.
Folk’s iconographic branding across each garment gently highlights the natural shades of the wool.
