The Swiss company Victorinox, well-known around the globe for its high quality and extremely functional pocketknives that are not only trusted multi-tools in all life’s adventures, but due to some unique designs sought after collection items, launched its second Peruvian themed pocketknife collection.
Already in 2017, Victorinox presented its first limited Peru edition based on the famous red Victorinox Spartan pocketknife and featuring three of Peru’s amazing attractions: Machu Picchu, Nazca Lines and Caral – we reported in our article “Victorinox discovers Peru”.
Now the Swiss pocketknife manufacturer - with the collaboration of Marca Peru and PromPeru - goes one step further and launched a new Peruvian edition under the motto “Art to Conserve”.
Three Peruvian artists, César Caycho, Qarla Quispe and Fito Espinosa, each designed the look of one Victorinox pocketknife of the collection being inspired by the local flora, fauna and Andean nature.
César Caycho, a Peruvian plastic artist and graphic designer, created the black knife with the colorful fish on one side and birds on the other side. In his creations he demonstrates a surrealist style marked by urban and exotic symbolism.
Qarla Quispe, a Peruvian plastic artist, designed the black Andean village knife. Her works aim at empowering women and “cosmopolitanize” the typical Andean skirts that represent an important part of the Peruvian culture.
Fito Espinosa, a renowned, nationally and internationally awarded Peruvian plastic artist, created the light yellow Victorinox pocketknife. His style creates soft, tender, colorful images.
For each knife of this beautiful edition sold Victorinox will donate a percentage of the profits to the Reforestation for Nature Initiative of the Peruvian Society of Environmental Law (SPDA).
