About

We work with Peruvian artist from Chincheros-Cusco who make handmade looms. 

The colorful hues of the looms are made based on natural products.

Alpaca wool and sheep wool are used as the main raw material for processing. First, the Saqta, a root native to the area that is considered the shaman of the Incas, is used to wash the wool. Subsequently, the spinning is performed resulting in fine and uniform threads that will pass to the dyeing. 

 
To achieve perfect coloring and create harmony in colors, flowers, roots and leaves are used in the surroundings. It is necessary to fix the coloration provided and for this, volcanic stone is used. 
 
Finally, we proceed to the tissue. The designs they are given are learned from generation to generation. 
 
The result of all that hard work is the Inka's way sneakers
We care about having a socially responsible development and therefore, our sneakers are ecofriendly. 
 
We are Emma Melgarejo and Maryan Caballero, mother and daughter lovers of Peru and their culture. We have experience in the design and manufacture of typical Peruvian clothing fashion garments. We have always wanted to work with Peruvian artists and this is the moment to make our dream come true! We hope you will help us to achieve this. We are also developing different accessories to complement our portfolio of Inka's way brand products.
