Quirky little outfits from Fournier.
Fournier design a very small but fine collection,  a unique line of clothing of the finest baby alpaca wool, organic cotton and pima cotton. Anabel Fournier founded Fournier as a poverty alleviation project in the summer of 2004 while living in Bolivia, and after researching rural women’s survival strategies in the face of extreme poverty.
The point of her research was to settle on a project to help the community make long lasting improvements in their own standards of living. After discovering the amazing natural materials and craftmanship, Anabel dedicated her stay in Bolivia to lay the groundwork for Fournier. In these six years Fournier has been training the artisans in knitting, crocheting, embroidery and sewing.Bolivian artisans handcraft Fournier’s designs following a strict quality control to manufacture a fashion forward, eco-friendly collection of clothing.
