In 2001, Import Chompas was created with a mission to introduce ILLIMANI to the North American market, a luxury ready-to-wear collection of alpaca and llama wool apparel hand-made by artisans in Bolivia.

After many years in the fashion business, they decided it is time to focus on the yarn; by applying all their experience on knits and fine wools to carefully select the very best natural yarns in the world at unbeatable prices.

Illimani has worked with thousands of artisans in Bolivia and Peru, many of which have mastered the art of knitting and crocheting. Their mission is to provide the materials and the inspiration to their customers to help them create their own artisanal textiles.

They also work along with international aid organisations to support artisans in the Bolivian and Peruvian Andes commercialize their products in the North American markets.
