Killasumaq LLC is an American company that designs, manufactures and sells both casual and formal shoes for ladies. The materials are manufactured in Lima, Peru and Wichita, KS, USA. The worldwide sales take place in a virtual marketplace at www.aidastenholm.com. It is owned and operated by a Peruvian-American, Aida Stenholm.
We used traditional Peruvian material sourced from families that use a centuries old process of hand woven cloth from high in the Andes and leathers from some of the best tanneries in the world. The soles of the flats are specially designed and made only for use by Killasumaq. We wanted to reflect the traditions and customs and art of Peru. All of Killasumaq’s shoes are hand-made. As such, they take time and care. They will never be mass-produced.
We only make shoes for ladies who like unique, top quality foot-ware. We make very limited batches in each color. Once they are sold out, there will be no more. The blankets that we use vary in color, pattern and style. The specifics are up to the artisans who hand weave them. The combination of these two factors guarantees you a nearly one-of-a-kind work of art.
The name “Killasumaq” means “beautiful moon” in Quechuan, the oldest language spoken in that region.
We hope your family enjoys them as much as ours.
