We love discovering fabulous new products and are especially thrilled to share products featured locally so our readership can experience such luxury for themselves. An added benefit is to be able to say the founder of the brand is just as delightful as the product is sumptuous. That’s how we feel about Sandra Jordan and the Sandra Jordan Prima Alpaca Collection headquartered in California.
Prima Alpaca “Gold of the Andes,” once treasured by Incan royalty for its softness, beauty, and versatility, remains one of the most treasured textiles available today. This natural fiber is brought to market utilizing a time-honored process thousands of years in the making. From raising of the alpaca, shearing, through manufacturing of the textile the process is earth-friendly as well as creates jobs for textile workers in Sandra’s native Peru.
The luxurious textiles of the Sandra Jordan Prima Alpaca Collection are prized for their elegant drape, silky softness, and velvety touch. I can attest to its luxurious hand and sumptuous texture as having experienced it first-hand at John Brooks showroom.
Not only luxurious to handle, Prima Alpaca is quite strong and hypoallergenic, making it suitable for upholstery and throws, curtains and wall coverings. The intense sun indicative of the Southwest, known to wreak havoc on drapery and walls coverings, may have met its match with Prima Alpaca. It’s innate ability to reflect light and resist solar radiation helps the textile keep its appearance over time, and makes it naturally stain-resistant.
With the holidays upon us, look no further for the perfect gift for a special client or best friend, the Sandra Jordan Prima Alpaca Collection includes custom throws handmade to your design specifications.
The spectacular palette of natural shades such as dove gray, russet and inky black in a rich array of patterns can be found at John Brooks and is available through your local interior designer.
