The Chio story

Our founder Rocio Bracamonte launched Chio in 2018 with a collection of throws, scarves and wraps made of the finest Peruvian alpaca fiber.

Rocio was born in Lima, Peru, where she earned a business degree, and after a few years working in product marketing moved to the United States to pursue her MBA. She finally relocated to the Seattle area, where she lives with her family.

Rocio had always been fascinated by the rich cultural heritage and textile techniques of her native country and knew that she had to share this with the rest of the world.

By working with alpaca fiber Chio not only provides exceptional quality products to their customers but supports indigenous farmers from the Peruvian Andean mountains.
