Peru: Exporting fashion*

AmCham PeruInfo provided by the
American Chamber of Commerce of Peru (AmCham Peru)

It is easy to observe that Peruvian clothing exports increased by 58% between the years of 2004 and 2007, being U.S. and Venezuela the fundamental markets.Without a doubt our country has a clear competitive edge for clothing exports and it doesn’t surprise anyone, that using the unilateral preferences from the ATPDEA, this sector has heavily increased its sales to the United States stimulating the growth of non traditional Peruvian exports.

It is easy to observe that Peruvian clothing exports increased by 58% between the years of 2004 and 2007, being U.S. and Venezuela the fundamental markets. The main products exported were cotton t-shirts, blouses and shirts, even though there is an interesting dynamic going on with baby clothing as well.

And it is because our country has the benefit of having access to high quality raw materials, like Pima cotton and Alpaca fibers, it is able to succeed by being close to the U.S. market. Added to that, the fact that it has a solid reputation for quick and efficient delivery as well as flexibility in the turn around when it comes to shipment volumes, all these results in the increase of sales that we have been observing in the past few years.

And even if this sector shows an interesting growth it is a determining generator of formal work, it is necessary to ask ourselves how can we extend our sales more now that the imminent preferential taxes are due to start with the U.S. and Peru agreement?

Especially considering that Asian countries like China, Vietnam and Indonesia, dominate the market with their low prices based on cheap labor, it is obvious that even though our industries are making a huge effort to be more competitive and to cut costs, they have less and less margin each and every time to overcome the competition with those particular countries. Hence the differentiation is key for the future of this sector. In as much as to add value to these type of products, our industry needs to concentrate their effort in developing new designs and branding for their fashion items. This will allow bigger prices and bigger margins of revenue that will introduce the pressure of option already introduced by the Asian competitors. Nevertheless, in order for this to happen, it is necessary to invest in the diverse capabilities and meticulously observe the success of countries like Italy or France, that have managed to create an image of exclusivity and quality around their labels.

A clear example of the effort some businesses are investing in this matter, was observed in the latest edition of the Peru - Moda 2008 Fair, which joined under a same roof, 400 textile producers and exporters, manufacturers, jewelers, shoes manufacturers and accessories. In such an event, our country was able to show the world that not only are we capable of producing high quality products, but we can also provide creativity and innovative designs.

Therefore, dear reader, the development of a brand is not easy and demands a lot of time and effort, especially in the phases of promotion and location. But considering the immense existent possibilities, it is definitely a recommendable strategy for our exporters.

I think Peru's only chance to compete against the Asian clothing manufactures is to Publicize the fact that Peruvian clothing is not made in slave labor sweatshops by children. This approach is working to pay a fair price in the Coffee industry. Also advertise that all materials ,dyes etc. are safe and the environment was not harmed in the making of this product.That's just a few claims the Chinese can't answer.

We'd like to introduce Rainer SAC as your potential supplier of unique organic baby and children clothes.
Rainer SAC designs and elaborates exclusive baby and children fashion with super soft 100% Organic Color Grown Peruvian Cotton certified by Control Union (Skal). This cotton is praised worldwide because it's one of the softest and purest available.
Because it doesn't have pesticides, chemicals or artificial colors, Organic Color Grown Cotton is believed to reduce allergies and respiratory problems. It also feels softer to the skin and has a pleasant smell. Every color in our fabrics is the cotton seeds original color. Our naturally grown colors range from white to chocolate, with green and brown shades in between.
Our products are one of a kind; in fact, many of our products are hand-made, making them unique. We provide work to very talented women who have inherited a long time tradition of sewing and knitting. These women work in the best environment -- they make Rainer SAC clothes at home -- so they can be with their kids while contributing to their family income.
Rainer SAC clothes are not only naturally gentle to children and mother earth; they are fashionable and comfortable to wear. Our look is traditional and clean; thus reflecting a classy, eco-friendly lifestyle.
We can supply small orders immediately (starting at 1 item per model chosen) but will be glad to accommodate large orders as well. We can work your own brand and designs.
Please don't hesitate to contact us via e-mail or via phone . If you like to know more about us and our products visit or call 511-3443338 or cell 511-999065179 in Peru or (305) 398-4102 in USA or emailme

Did someone answer your question about the missing post?

and by any chance you have relatives in Guadalupe/La Liberta?


# john allan says :
25 July, 2008 [ 05:55 ]
It appears that when there is an indication of a new post it doesn't get posted. When you try to contact Amcham peru they are either taking a coffee break or there is no one to respond. So what is the purpose to this site. By the way on youtube I found aninteresting video called opec go pound sand about the energy crisis but also this could apply to Peru and other countries.
# peloflex says :
25 July, 2008 [ 08:20 ]

I was just curious, because the city where I come from, Guadalupe in La Libertad (north of Peru) there is a Meneses Family, which by the way were very close friends to my parents, (Julio and Luis Meneses) and as far as I know, some of them had migrated to Lima, I thought you might come from one of them. Just curious, but thank you for taking the time to answer me.

Best regards,

Be very careful about buying merchandise from Peru as much is conterfeit. Only deal directly with the owner of the trademark or it could lead to serious problems for you. If you need to find out the manufacturer or distributor go on line and search for the legal owner of the product or service or check with the consulate of that country. The customs people can caonficate and will all such illegal merchandise and you will lose you money and could be prosceuted. In Chile recently thousands of garments with false brand names were confiscated and several people were arrested and the buyer of such merchandise can also be arrested.

Dear Cassius Silva
Let me know if you can find one. One that can assure you of the quality of not only the fabric but also the dye process as in the past we have had a bad experience with he dye washing out when the clients put the garment in the laundry and for that reason we have not purchased any more garments from Peru. However if things have changed we would reconsider our decisions.

In the face of recent agressive , stupid, and hateful comments made by a leading military leader in Peru we have decided to wait until sometime in the future and see if Peru is able to enter the real world of today or will continue to respect those persons with a chest full of plastic unearned medals. Take a look at that clown and see that if he had earned all those honors on his uniform he would have had to started his career during the war of the pacific. Not only that but his attitude reflects that of the people who support him and this makes Peru less than desirable for investment by foreign companies.

Oh, by the way Pinochet is dead and cremated.

# John says :
18 January, 2009 [ 11:12 ]
Because we are taking inventory photos this week the information that you have requested will delayed. However our basic line of one company is fifty item per referance(code number) we only accept bank transfer and shipment is generally made within two weeks of said transfer due to packaging and customs regulations, the cost of shipping is paid by the client as is the documentation and bank transfers. We have not Ralph Lauren merchandise for distribution. Prices vary depending on the item and brand. For example the men's swinsuit is a price different than the men's underwear. If you have any additional questions prior to receiving additional information from us please contact me .We ship from Santiago Chile by air of your choice. Merchandise is by collection and when a collection is sold  a new one is created and so not all items are alway available. Thank you very much

Each  country has its own laws regarding the importing of items, regaless of the nature:I.E. raw materials, unfinished goods, finished goods etc. There aremany facets to importingand exporting so what I suggest is that you contact an agency in your location andhave a meeting with them about what you want to do.I have found that if you consult with a private company it is often better than consulting with an embassy or consulate who may not be up date regarding the items, rules and regulations, duties, taxes, fees etc. Also it is often better to be more secure that the company that you are dealing with is legtimite and has no claims against it. Also I would ask for verifiable references, such as trade associations, banks, etc. I hope that this helps you somewhat

Thanks a lot for your help. The reason I was asking is because I'm from the US, but recently linked up with a factory in Peru that makes shirts, tops, etc. and have been shipping our merchandise air cargo for the most part but now are starting to get orders that require containers so I was wondering if anyone knew of any good freight companies that provide competitive pricing. I have consulted locally but maybe was hoping someone from Peru has experienced this before and could point me to a great company. Thanks again for your advice.

I am currently researching on clothing made in Peru as i am looking to starting a small business importing jeans and fahionable clothing into Australia.  I have family in Peru that can assist me but i would love to start seeing the types of fashion available in Peru in particular jeans that couter the body etc and finding out more about manufacturers in Peru and what services they can provide.  Where possible i am considering designing a few items and was wondering if anyone can help me with labels and how it all works in Peru and their manufacturing companies. 

I am also looking at toddler clothing and garments made with pima cotton.  Any information, contacts, websites or even brochures online would be extremely helpful.

Hope to receive some assistance.

Hi, I am peruvian but I am living in Canada. I want to start importing alpaca clothes from Peru into Canada. I appreciate if you could send me all the information that you have about this topic, all the taxes here in Canada and in Peru, and maybe all the procedure to start, all the paper work. I want to start this business as soon as possible. My mother is still living in Peru, before I come to Canada we went to La Marina Av. in Lima to see their products, in some place, we gave them some money and they had to make some sweaters with special measures for us. But I am here in Canada almost two months and they always say to my mother that the sweaters are not ready yet. I was wondering if you have some information about some reliable companies or people that can make sweaters with special measures for us and also I'm looking for the most economical way to ship these sweaters to Canada. Thank you !

Hello everyone,

I am an American expat that has lived in Peru with wife for the past 6 years. I work around the world 6 to 7 months a year as an offshore sub-contractor and return to Peru during my off time.

I also make trips back and forth from our home office in Houston, Texas and Peru. Looking to get into the import / export business even at a basic level as an agent helping people get what ever they want from Peru to USA.

If anyone is in need of someone that can either do research on this end or help deliver or recieve your products to and from USA leave me a message.

Even if you are not an expat you can find out what is happening in the world by mousing into .08:00 hrs E.T. to the show "guess who's coming to breakfast" the show airs monday morning only and covers interesting subjects from everywhere. And will shortly be covering some issue about Peru. This is a non-political show and is about those events that can make our lives better.

I am looking for a factory in Peru that can provide services from concept to finished product. That is from concept, to sketches, selecting fabrics, all the way to TOP samples. I know a company in Peru that does all this but their minimums are too high. I am looking for very small quantities to start out, almost test quantities, and then as sales grow so will the quantities. I'd like to start with pima cotton T-shirts, basics & screen prints, alpaca scarves, etc.

If anybody can help me out, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

I am planning to have a package sent from Peru to the US that will weigh roughly 70-90 kilos.  I am curious what you have found with regards to import fees in the US.  My business partner said he will be paying an exit tax to the Peruvian govt.  Will I also have to pay an entry tax on this side?  Will the package be held at customs until I pay the fee.  Who should I contact in order to insure that the package arrives promptly with minor complications to my home here in the US?

# john says :
9 September, 2009 [ 09:33 ]
Rather than listen to people why don't you consult with a company in the states that provides that service. There are many freight expediters and import agents listed. If there is a tax it depends on several factors I suggest that you go to your computer Friday Morning at 09:00 E.T. and tune into and listen to my Program "guess whose coming to breakfast as I discuss many of these issues.
# To Sam Magro says :

Hi Sam Magro,
First of all, ask your supplier for Partida Arancelaria, then you can search if your products are duty free or not, remember the PERU-USA Trade: To use this benefit you need a Certificate of Origin, your supplier have to do this and send it to you with your importing documents.

Would it be illegal for me to produce my collection here and sell online? (the finished goods will be shipped from Lima)

I have lived in Peru for 2.5 years, i'm from USA...I have bought shirts, pants, underwears that's made in Peru...they are not good quality at all, color comes off, mess up my other clothes...horrible stitchings, usually i have to throw them away after awhile...then if u buy a large shirts, they come different sizes, it's just bad...forever 21, H&M's clothes all made in China, and they are sometimes cheaper than the clothes in Peru and much much better in quality...just my opinion!

The dynamism, and long life, of this thread is another exciting example of the growth of opportunity and interest as it relates to Peruvian products.

I am, however, concerned (unless I am mis-reading) of the degree of interest in purchasing "brand name" goods. 

Yes, in fact Peruvian entrepreneurs have gained a reputation for quality and compliance and therefore have earned the trust of firms such as Ralph Lauren and Lacoste (among many others).  To request/promote the cancer of black-market sales and/or pirated look alikes is PRECISELY the avenue that we do NOT need to further develop here.  Go to Asia.  What we need here is to stamp whatever participation there is (and sadly it does exist) in unethical trade, not promote it.

Should someone wish to purchase Ralph Lauren, Lacoste or whatever other brand, those firms have well established commercial offices to contract with and not put in jeopardy the corporate and national reputation (and incomes) of local producers.  That said:  The contractual relationship brands have with our manufacturers DO typically detail how overstocks and seconds can/must be disposed of, though every day there are fewer seconds and overstocks as our manufacturers technologically advance along with their customers.

Ethically-profitable  buyers and sellers have far more to offer to the long-term growth of our dynamic economy that some fast buck corner cutter.

My Peruvian wife and I are starting a newl Fair Trade business in the U.S.  We focus on items from Peru and currently handle only hand made Fair Trade artisan products, such as ceramics and textiles.  We would like to start an exclusive line of Fair Trade denim clothing.  We know that certifying clothing is difficult right now, but we are dedicated to social justice, economic justice and success.  We won't give up!

We thought there might be a way to work with a Peruvian organic denim manufacturer and a local Fair Trade sewing cooperative to produce designs we could sell in the U.S.  We would at least like to explore this approach.

I will be in Lima next week (April 28-30) for the annual Peru Gift Show.  If any of you has some knowledge about this and would like to meet while I am in Lima, please give me a shout at  Thanks.
