Arlette Lee “Effortless travel, beautiful style”

Arlette Lee is a British-based brand working exclusively with the supreme natural fibre Alpaca, advocating the exceptional artisanship of the Andes – bringing a piece of nature closer to home.

Arlette Lee’s spirit of adventure led to the creation of her luxury knitwear brand, encapsulating the values of sustainability and style.

All garments offer a functional and elegant wardrobe staple for contemporary life on the move – designed to wear from day to night and throughout the seasons.

Each garment is made in Peru using organic, certified and fair-trade baby alpaca which keeps your body cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Arlette Lee is a contemporary Eco-fashion lifestyle brand that is ethical, sustainable and animal friendly.

The Ruana is a blanket coat/ cape with a unique cut, which allows for slimline belting around the waist; alternatively, one end can be casually tossed over a shoulder to keep the wearer warm; it can be pinned shut, or it can be worn open.

The SnugaLee is essentially an inifnity scarf: a long, circular knit that can be worn as a scarf, either single or double wrapped, or thrown over the head and neck in cold weather to act as a hood and scarf.

Both the Ruanas and SnugaLees are powder soft, thanks to the alpaca material, which is finer than cashmere and allows the wearer to stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

We work exclusively with artisans in Peru preserving their traditional craftsmanship.
