Since 1979, LANART has been a company that has defied manufacturing norms. Born on the coast of Southern California and now headquartered in Huntersville, North Carolina, LANART has been working with alpaca and fair trade practices from our own Latin heritage in Peru.
Founded by Angelo Ponce, our humble beginnings were driven by designing and distributing artistic alpaca rugs with our core philosophy to show the world the beautiful luxury and diverse offerings of alpaca fiber in an array of products while also supporting the artistic traditions of the native people of Peru.


As the popularity of alpaca has grown, LANART now offers a wider variety of distinctive alpaca produces that include needle-felted sculptures, teddy bear collections, socks, accessories and home decor. Because our accessories and hand-crafted products are a work of art and culture, they can often be found in museum gift shops and cultural displays across the country.

In the Charlotte, North Carolina region, we are also aligned with the Sister Cities program, supporting the connections made between Charlotte and Arequipa, Peru and establishing a closer cultural and production relationship with the people in Arequipa.

We are often involved locally in festivals, trade shows and are wholesalers from our Huntersville warehouse to retailers around the country. For more information on LANART, call 877-ALPACAS or visit our website!
