AymaraAymara Contact: Sven Van Gucht Yannina Esquivias
Aymara is the result of the love story between a Belgian engineer, Sven Van Gucht, who met Yannina Esquivias, a young Peruvian travel agent, during a sabbatical year and fell in love. Yannina and Sven quit their jobs and started a knitting factory in Peru together with Yannina’s family. In 2007, the knitwear label Aymara was born. The name Aymara refers to a native ethnic group in the Andes of South America.
The magic of Aymara lies in the combination of Belgian design and Peru’s extraordinary fibers and textile craftmenship. Aymara’s knitwear is produced in our own knitting factory in Arequipa, in the south of Peru, managed by Yannina’s family. Thank’s to our strong relationship with them and their unconditional commitment, this incredible intercontinental project could be achieved. We believe that in today’s world of fast fashion and mass consumption, people are looking for authentic products with a soul. When buying Aymara, you are sure to get longlasting, sustainable products with an extraordinary story.
Excellent natural fibers play a key role and are the starting point of each Aymara design. This is why Aymara chooses to offer pure styles available in a wide colour palette of bright and soft colours. Our designers take into account the fashion trends but at the same time, we make sure that each Aymara product is timeless and longlasting. A lot of attention has been paid for the perfect fitting form and discrete refined details. The kids collection, designed by Yannina has a playful character whereas the women’s collection, designed by Saskia Van Herzeele is very feminine.
Peru manufactures some of the world’s finest quality fibers. For our summer collections, Aymara uses Peruvian pima cotton which is considered to be one of the softest and finest cottons in existence. In winter, garments made of precious alpaca blends are always an important part of our collection. Alpaca is a cousin of the llama and is prized for it’s thermal properties, silkiness and durability. Alpaca is a fiber which does not come at the expense of the environment. In today’s world, dominated by artificial materials, alpaca is the natural option. Alpacas graze at elevations of 3500 to 5000 meters in the Peruvian Andes. This precious fibre is used by top designers world wide. Aymara only uses the finest alpaca fibers, called baby alpaca. In our winter collections we also offer garments made of fine merino wool from Argentina.
Aymara’s knitting plant is fully integrated and employs about 60 persons on the pay roll. This assures us to be in complete control of the production process and the quality of the garments. Although the knitting process itself has been industrialized, the production process is labour intensive and still requires a lot of manual operations. A lot of attention is been paid to the linking and finishing processes. Aymara garments are fully fashioned ; this means that the cutting and overlocking process is avoided as much as possible. By doing so, Aymara’s customers are getting a high quality product with one of the finest linking and finishing standards on the market. Turn your Aymara garment inside out and you will see what we mean !
Although most of the collection is produced on industrial knitting machines, each winter season Aymara offers a small theme of hand knit accessories. This enables women to generate an income by hand knitting at their home while taking care of their children. For a lot of these women it would be impossible to work inside a company because of their family situation and the lack of childcare. You can recognize these products by the “Aymara hand knit” hang tag. We are currently investigating how this could be integrated into a wider social project.

About BCF Confection
In 1954 great-grandmother Germaine De Dier started manufacturing coats and accessories in Haaltert (Belgium). The economy revived after WWII and many family-owned textile companies in East and West Flanders also benefited from this. It was the start of a thriving family business that, generation after generation, expanded and perfected its knowledge and experience.
60 years of knowledge and experience under one roof
The knowledge and experience of textile manufacturing has shifted to offshore production countries in the last twenty years. As a family-owned company, we have been passing on our knowledge from generation to generation for over 60 years. Our employees are all technically skilled in textile manufacturing and provide you with advice in all areas. Our employees are intensively trained and supported.
high-quality and sustainable textiles are the standard
BCF Confection is committed to providing the best quality in textiles, manufactured in the best possible conditions for people and the environment.
We attach great importance to high-standard raw materials and a high-quality finishing. We make almost exclusively use of Coats yarns from Europe’s leading industrial thread company providing high-quality yarns for every application, and use Juki and Brother sewing machines. With our advanced software, we draw 2D/3D patterns.
Good working conditions. In our production unit in Tunisia, we work in the spirit of the Fair Wear foundation. We offer the best possible social working conditions to all our employees and are happy to work with customers who are a member of the Fair Wear Foundation.
Environmental awareness. In each step of the production process, we pay attention to the impact of textile manufacturing on the environment. All our raw materials are OEKO-TEX® certified: the manufactured fabrics do not contain any residues of harmful substances like pesticides or heavy metals. During production, we deal thoroughly with the water and energy consumption.
As a local Belgian textile manufacturer, we are happy to share our expertise with you and advise you on the feasibility and cost of your projects. We manufacture your textile design through the process of cut, make and trim (CMT) or as ready-made garment (RMG). Flexible order quantities and short delivery deadlines are our biggest assets. In our own production unit in Tunisia, we manufacture your fabrics in limited order quantities from 20 pieces on with a fast delivery time of 2 to 4 weeks.

It is in 1996 that we created Noukie’s, in Belgium. Our wish was to offer to the smallest children (and their parents), a remarkably soft toy, with short pile and embroidered eyes, to ensure both safety and hygiene; an innovation was born. Noukie’s would quickly develop a real expertise in the creation of characters and soft toys, and understand its essential role in the emotional development of babies. Our soft toys, the child’s every day companion, bring supreme softness, tenderness, and extend the feeling of comfort and safety given by the parents.
From 1998 onwards, our characters start creating genuine environments and also appear on linens, and later on, on day- and night wear, while always keeping the combination of softness and safety.
In 2004, Noukie’s opens its first store in Brussels, and its second one in Paris
To celebrate the brand’s 10th anniversary, we decide to bring our characters in motion. And so the animated 3D TV series “Nouky, Paco, and Lola” was born. Conceived with psychologists for children, this gentle and tender TV series experienced great success, and is still broadcasted in more than 163 countries…
In 2007, Noukie’s and its whole team are awarded the prestigious trophy of “Company of the Year” by Ernst & Young
In 2010, Noukie’s completes its baby environment by creating bedroom furniture.
Our story goes on with that of our characters, and we are proud of Noukie’s presence in more than 32 countries, where it brings tenderness and happiness to both children and adults
