Details

Pia Zavala of Peru designs a tailored sweater jacket with chic details. Knit with sumptuously soft alpaca blended with acrylic and wool for durability, the sweater is black with a hint of grey running through. The open front shows lapels in contrasting light grey, with matching light grey triangles at the bottom opening, and on the center of the lower back, giving the sweater flattering lines. The same grey triangles are also at the hem of the sleeves.

"This sweater is my all time favorite!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I just gave this sweater to my mom for Christmas. In her words: The design is inspired and the detail exquisite; the workmanship is perfection; the feel is pure comfort and ease. Pia Zavala is indeed an artist in the finest sense - someone to follow. This sweater instantly became my all time favorite! (and she is a very discerning person when it comes to clothing!)

Very nice pattern. Sleeve length perfect (most unusual for me). I would have like more fullness on the back where the sleeves join.

Best Uses

  • When a smart cardigan is needed

"More stunning than the photo!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I received my sweater today. When I opened my package and saw the sweater, I was so excited. It was so pretty. I tried it on and it fit perfectly. I have never owned anything made of Alpaca. This felt so soft to the touch. What an absolutely gorgeous sweater! Our weather is just turning really cold with days being 50 degrees and evenings being 30 to 40 degrees. I am so happy to have a warm soft sweater to wear under my winter coat. I absolutely adore my new sweater. I was sitting and looking at the pattern and thinking, this artist has such a gifted talent. I too am an artist and truly appreciate all the hard work that went into this. Thank you so very much for making this and selling it. Vicki Chick

"Soon to be my favorite sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have jsut received this sweater and I know it will soon be my favorite sweater. It is so unique in the style. I love the inverted v pattern on the back. I have not worn it out yet as we are having a heat wave in Maine right now but I cant wait until fall. This sweater is one of a kind & I cannot wait to show it off. The light creamy beige color will go with practically anything. It is a work of art. It is beyond any picture. You just have to see it and hold it in your hands.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Pia's struggles with her health have forced her to downsize her workshop but she is determined to keep it open. Her workers rely on their earnings to care for themselves and their families. Nearly half of the workshop's income is derived from Novica sales and Pia does not want to let let her helpers down.

Pia has taken a very modern approach to textile production. Her workers live far from her workshop and used to spend hours each day traveling to work. Pia moved her knitting machines to her artisans' homes and they no longer have to travel great distances. They are able to spend more time with their families and still earn a living. Pia works with machine knitters and hand finishers to create her knitwear collection.

Pia struggles daily with fibromyalgia. Marcelino, her assistant, of 32 years, suffered a stroke in 2016. He continues with his knitting at the workshop but struggles with work that once came easily. However, they have worked together since the very beginning and find joy in their success and strength in each other as they face their health challenges.

Pia's innovative approach to production has enabled her to work with artisans who once needed to travel a great distance to the workshop. In spite of her own health difficulties, she has kept her workshop open in order to provide a steady income for her collaborators.

Pia has been included in a local magazine story about her participation in an event to benefit profoundly deaf children.

The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.

Pia's children are grown but she provides for the education of a grandchild.
