My name is Patricia Argüelles, Peruvian, with a Business Studies degree from the University of Lima, I also have a degree in architecture from the Ricardo Palma University in Lima.

I’ve lived in Spain since 1999, I first came to Madrid to do an MBA at the Business Institute and I never looked back.

Since 2001 I have been working in fashion, I started out in the fashion industry setting up my own jewellery brand, and now my time is dedicated to Be ALPACA.

At Be ALPACA we want to bring Alpaca wool, and the artisan products made from it to the world and give them the attention they deserve.

Peru is world famous for three main export products, Alpaca, Vicuna, and Cotton. Lima also has artisan craftspeople making exceptional products of the highest quality and at Be ALPACA we want give them better exposure worldwide.

I also work under the brand Patricia Argüelles Design, which produces jewellery belts, sashes and necklaces. You can find more information on our webpage at: www.patriciaarguelles.com

In 2014 I was featured as one of the 51 females whose professional careers were discussed in the book “51 Peruvian women. Tales of success in Spain”. This book was made with the support of Casa de America in Madrid, in which 51 women accounted of their experience in Spain.

If you want to join the Be ALPACA brand or if you want any information about us, please contact me directly at patricia@bealpaca.com
