An entire day on the Andes at an altitude of 4.500 meters. A complicated rite that involves hundreds of campesinos and dozens of villages scattered around the plateaus of the Pampa Galeras, on the road to Cuzco, 90 kilometres up from Nazca. Guitars and drums, hot soups and early morning treks, masks and costumes: everyone joins in for the vicuňa shearing. A traditional gathering which takes place in various Andean areas of South America, in order to obtain the world's finest fibre. In particular, there's a entire private reserve here, just outside the Reserva Nacional de Pampa Galeras, managed by Loropiana, one of the leading companies on the international scene in the production of high quality fabrics, in collaboration with local communities. A successful “glocal” experiment.
