Women Talking talks to Antonia Valentin Jacob, founder of Lacorine, Exquisite alpaca Designs, producing unique Fairtrade alpaca clothing and gifts from the finest, ethically sourced textiles from Peru.
Many businesses have had to change their approach due to the restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic and Lacorine is of no exception. As a fashion and gift retailer, Antonias most buoyant business was from the hands-on approach at trade, Christmas and regional fairs. People fall in love with my teddy bears once they have felt their softness and cuddliness states Antonia. Fluffy collectables are the perfect, unique luxury gift for children, new babies and teddy bear lovers and the local shows and fairs were the perfect outlet to showcase my range.
My fashion wear has a similar effect, once you have stroked one of our soft alpaca fur hats or worn one of our shawls or capes you will be smitten for life! Our hats are unbelievably warm yet so light you barely feel them on your head. Once you try them on, there is no turning back, you are a dedicated customer forever, due to the exceptional quality, look and feel.
