The 2014/15 collection featured the Highlands of Ecuador. Alpaca plain weaves were created in the town of Quinchuqui where Wolftress collaborated with one single family to spin the cloth. Intricately woven colourful cotton weaves were created in the town of Agato and hand moulded felt hats were created in a town called Iluman. The result of these collaborations was a rich and intricate collection of alpaca cover-ups, trendy fedora style hats and solid silver contemporary jewellery.
