'Virtu' was designed to offer high quality clothing that would have a positive impact on the people that provide the resources to create the items.

Currently, the brand offers "pullovers" which are long-sleeved shirts made from 100% natural alpaca yarn -- an ethically sourced and environmentally friendly material. The clothing is hypoallergenic, soft, weather-resistant and durable. It also works to empower the Bolivian communities from which the clothing was made by offering them more than a living wage, an empowerment fund that finances early education and micro finance programs for producers of the alpaca yarn and ensures a sustainable business model.

The charitable men's clothing Virtu functions in tandem with local communities to create high quality fashion that empowers communities and has a low environmental impact.
