“Devoted to Design” and “Committed to Heritage” are the mottos of Escudo’s founders, Chiara and Guiliana Macciavello. The two Peruvian sisters, who studied design in London and worked for European fashion companies before returning to Lima to open Escudo, are fiercely committed to creating stylish modern clothing that is based on exceptional Peruvian alpaca and cotton fibers and the master craftsmanship of their team in the rural mountains of Huancavelica province. Their designs blend a trendy fashion sense with folkloric charm, so you may find a jean jacket with traditional Peruvian embroidery or soft alpaca ponchos in traditional neutral colors and with a bright vivid trim. Some pieces can be found in many of Lima’s top boutiques, like Dédalo, but at the showroom, you can see the entire collection as well as the workshop. Meet Guiliana Macciavello in our People We Meet Along the Way: Lima.
