VAIL — On Thursday, Town and Worth Home present an evening with Sandra Jordan, founder of Sandra Jordan Prima Alpaca, the world’s only extensive line of luxury alpaca fabric for the home.

The event will take place on Thursday from 4:30 to 7 p.m. in the Worth Home showroom at 141 East Meadow Drive, Suite 202 in Vail.

Jordan will be on hand to chat about her work founding her line of precious textiles, explaining their many design applications, sustainable features and the fascinating story of their origin and production in Peru.

Royal Material

Raised high in the remote, harsh climate of the Andes mountains, alpacas are ancient, sacred animals whose fleece was once lavished on Incan nobility. Prized for its exquisite drape and supreme softness, Sandra Jordan Prima Alpaca Collection of luxurious home textiles has re-imagines these textiles for a modern audience.

A native of Peru with a passionate appreciation of her country’s traditional arts, company founder Jordan is deeply committed to offering the rare fiber that the Incas called “the gold of the Andes.”

“Modern pressures have impacted the availability of high-quality alpaca fleece,” Jordan said. “At Sandra Jordan, we work closely with South American organizations to reintroduce a sustainable model for local communities, create jobs, educate herdsmen and revive myths and traditions that date back 10,000 years.”

Hands-on Learner

Jordan developed an appreciation for exquisite old world craftsmanship during years of exposure and observation, research and study, travel, and teaching. As a child in Peru, she was exposed to many artisan crafts that are traditional in that part of the world. As a result of her stepfather’s work in the diplomatic corps, she traveled extensively from an early age. From 1993 until 2007, Jordan served as creative director at Jordan Winery.

Prima Alpaca Collection

In 2006, she launched the luxurious line of Prima Alpaca textiles for the design trade. Based in Northern California, the Sandra Jordan Prima Alpaca collection is now represented in showrooms across the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Russia and many European destinations.
