Founded in 2017, Patapaca reinvents working with alpaca wool to create contemporary socks for a changing world.
Your feet are masterpieces of evolution, working best when left to move freely and connected to the earth.
Alpaca wool is equally unique, having developed over tens of thousands of years in a harsh mountain climate.
When brought together, special things happen. A combination of the softest, lightest protection and healthy feet that can breathe. Together they are ultimately versatile, all the while bringing you closer to nature.
Designed in London and made in Peru Patapaca is on a creative journey to research and develop better socks for people and the planet.
Whether using a unique, traditional machine that knits the thickest alpaca socks possible or by working with artisans and sometimes knitting communities, they celebrate provenance and craft.
And through playfulness with color and attention to materials, they are always pushing to find a balance between socks that are long-lasting, comfortable and kind.
