About us

NORGÄTE was born into mother nature.
It's time to create a new feeling...

After years of extensive experience...

Our journey began in 2015

Our journey in the fashion industry began with the establishment of our sourcing company, Peruvian Traditions S.A.C. Through this venture, we embarked on a fascinating exploration of garments adorned with an array of colors and textures. We successfully crafted entire collections for numerous global brands and boutiques. An intriguing observation unfolded—our clientele predominantly hailed from the Northern Hemisphere. This realization laid the foundation for the name NORGÄTE; “NOR” signifies the north, while “GATE” represents our entrance to their world. Alpaca garments, renowned for their exceptional thermal properties, prove to be a perfect fit for colder climates.

About us. Claudia Cordero. Carlos Cordero. Norgate - Luxury and Sustainable Alpaca Clothing


Since our earliest days as childhood friends, we were inseparable companions and playmates, spending hours engrossed in games that could span days, months, and even years. Our bond was rooted in our shared initials, “CCB,” and our April birth dates – Carlos on the 2nd and Claudia on the 4th. Every year, we celebrated our birthdays together on the 3rd. After completing school, we embarked on the same educational journey, both pursuing degrees in International Business Administration, fueled by a shared dream of establishing our own company.

As time passed, we accumulated experience and honed our individual paths. Our fashion expedition began in 2014 when we embarked on research expeditions across the Andes of Peru. Our mission was to seek out exceptional craftsmen, source prime materials, and identify suppliers capable of delivering high-end garments featuring alpaca fiber and pima cotton.

The discoveries we made during our research left us awestruck. We had entered a new realm, one teeming with vibrant colors, diverse yarns, and captivating textures. However, what resonated most profoundly was the opportunity to support the talented artisans who infused life into these garments – the true creators, the knitters. Residing in the distant reaches of the Andes mountains, they were separated by both geographical and language barriers, which hindered their access to international clients. It was at this juncture that Peruvian Traditions was born – a sourcing company dedicated to alpaca clothing, designed to bridge the gap and assist with business connections while ensuring the well-being of these artisans, a vital link in the fashion supply chain. In 2016, armed with enhanced knowledge and a plethora of design courses, we took the leap to introduce our own private label, NORGÄTE.

Our ambition was to craft timeless garments, pieces that would become an enduring part of your wardrobe for years, if not decades. Each piece was meticulously designed to withstand the test of time, accompanying you on your life’s journey. Collaborating closely with the knitters and weavers, every NORGÄTE collection embodies our joint vision – a fusion of elegance, simplicity, and luxury. Our aim was to create uncomplicated, beautiful designs that are as functional as they are exquisite, all meticulously fashioned from baby alpaca and pima cotton.

Our mission was clear: to create sustainable, ethically-made clothing that bears the mark of Peru. Every stage of production adheres to stringent ethical standards, and our commitment remains steadfast to producing solely within Peru’s borders.

Today, we stand as lifelong partners, united by an extraordinary mission – to champion sustainable fashion ethically crafted in Peru. We invite you to join us on this remarkable journey, where you can delve into the world of our craftsmen and witness the creation of our garments firsthand.
