Our new Chimuk collection is inspired by the designs carved into the walls of the great adobe citadel Chan Chan, a World Heritage site located close to Chimuk© headquarters. The main resource in the Chimu culture was the sea; infiltrating every aspect of daily living, from fishing to artistry and meteorology.
The unique design of this beautiful garment is inspired by the "Rhombus", which represents the fishing nets used by the Chimu civilization along the northern coast of Peru.
