About Us

THE STORY.

In 2009, at the young age of 16, Jannik Weich came into contact for the first time with the wonderful, llama-like Alpacas during an academic exchange program in Peru. He was captivated by these animals and their soft fur which he saw as a high-quality alternative to wool. Even after getting back to Germany, Jannik’s fascination with Alpacas never faded, and 8 years later, in 2017, he decided to bring recognition to the Alpaca fiber beyond the South American continent. Thus a responsible, luxury creator of ethically sourced Alpaca products,  Weich Couture Alpaca, was born. Founded on an unrivaled start-up spirit paired with German quality work, Weich Couture Alpaca has set itself the goal of bringing the regional life traditions of the Peruvian Alpaca fiber to our globalized world. No doubt: This is only possible with a unique product.

THE QUALITY.

100% handmade quality. Weich. Couture. Alpaca. The name says it all.

‘Weich’ is the German term for ‘soft’. It is not only the name of the founder, but also the embodiment of our products. Thanks to handpicked, personally known suppliers in Peru, we can exclusively offer the highest quality level of the Alpaca fiber “Couture Alpaca” with a fiber thickness of less than 23 microns. Thus, the softness of our products is not only ensured, but in this form even unparalleled. In addition to this, we can guarantee that due to the handcrafted processing, all our high-quality products are unique.

THE DESIGN.

100% recognizable design. There are two types of alpaca, the Huacaya and the Suri.

The Huacaya has a denser and therefore incredibly fluffy hair. The Suri has a loose and silky hair, whichsets the natural glow particularly in scene. A magical feeling when touched with your hands or feet a new level of softness. As the first luxury brand for ethically sourced Alpaca fur products, our textilesare refined with the WEICH signature label without compromising the naturalness of the product.The brand experience is rounded off with an exclusive velvet pouch.
