An amazing 40% of all animal and plant life on earth is found in Bolivia. At 3,650m above sea level, La Paz is unofficially the highest capital city in the world.
Bolivia is home to Salar de Uyuni, the “largest mirror on Earth” and also one of the most beautiful things to see. Salar de Uyuni is an enormous 10,582 square kilometers in size and the largest salt flat on the planet.

A clock on the National Congress building in the main square of La Paz runs backwards to remind citizens to think differently. How cool is that! But our favorite fact about Bolivia is that it is home of 2 million Ilamas – the natural source of our knitwear production.
