About

 

Our Concept

 With our mission to ‘Blend old world craftsmanship with modern day aesthetics’, We are working with designers from all over the world to create something with “Aguayo’, fabric, a cultural heritage from the ancient Incan civilization. 

About Us

 We were able to discover a cultural heritage of value we wanted to share with the rest of the world in one of the most obscure places in the South American continent. We hope various people from all over the world enjoy and share this value.     

‘Aguayo, The traditional fabric from the Incan Culture’ 

 Aguayo has been produced since the ancient times in the Andes cultural areas that include Peru, Bolivia, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador etc. Produced as early as 2,300 B.C., Aguayo is produced is still produced in the most traditional method for its unique color scheme and designs as well as a weaving style not seen in other fabrics. We select only the best Aguayo through the various local channels at our disposal.

The harmony of exquisite design and outstanding color schemes, Aguayo is a fabric that cannot be easily copied in other cultural areas that carries massive potential as a fashion item.

Modern Aesthetics

Items based on Aguayo have existed in the past, and even today. However we aim to reinterpret the beautiful yet special cultural heritage of the Incan Civilization with modern twist. That is why we produce designs and items of quality appropriate for today’s consumers. 

Designers

 We are opened to everyone Our goal is not to design all our products by ourselves. As stated in our mission, we want Aguayo to be reinterpreted in as many way as possible. We are currently working in collaboration with designers for all parts of the world of diverse backgrounds. We are leaving all our channels open in order to collaborate with an even wider range of designers worldwide. We invite designers from all corners of the world who with to join our mission with new, inspirational ideas.

For the better world

 Recently. Many corporations are proposing business models that aid third world countries. This applies to Inpire Co. as well. Most people who produce Aguayo across South America are of the Ayama or Quechua tribes, minority groups in the continent. As our business grows, it is our aim to help improve the life conditions of these groups.

Risks and challenges

There may be two areas of concern for backers when it comes to our project.

First, is a small scale corporation capable of maintaining such a global production and distribution process?

Second, when designers are shared samples for participation, how will their ideas be protected, and in turn, how will the profits be allocated?

The answer is simple.

Currently, we have set up a network of professionals in ‘Asia(China, Korea)-South America(Peru)-United States’, and there are contingency plans in place in case the project does not proceed according to initial plans.

For example, all the hats in our product lines are not at the stage where only samples are available. We already have a significant amount in stock ready for shipment for backers who want them.

As for the issue of copyright and allocation of profits, we have established an internal standard at Inpire Co. which is awaiting legal certification regarding its efficacy in responding to international offers. Top Management will have direct communication with candidates with whom they want to collaborate with as designers, with the Updates function providing detailed notifications.
