The vision of the company is the connection of Scandinavian design with one of the world’s best fibres of the Peruvian alpaca. The results are stylish and sophisticated products with are manufactured full of proud and integrity!
Elvang Denmark was founded by Lasse and Tina Elvang in 2003. During a trip to Peru, both of them fell in love with the warm and friendly culture of the indigenes and their self-made products. Lasse and Tina offered the Peruvians the possibility of distributing their wool products to the whole world by founding Elvang Denmark.
Elvang Denmark is a member of the UN Global Compact, the world’s biggest network for companies with social responsibility. Elvang unrestrictedly stands for their principles and ensures flawless working conditions for the employees and distributors. The shepherds even learn how to get better wool by trainings of rearing and shearing their alpacas correctly.
A high and fair price for their wool is reached as well as a higher life-expectation of the alpacas is ensured by these commitment and principles. Elvang Denmark encourages an ancient tradition of alpaca-textile weaving by means of keeping every single production step in Peru. This supports the shepherds by means of increasing their life-quality and their salary, and it fights the extreme poverty which is still very present in Peru.
