Details

The gray arm bands of this orange sweater for men feature a stylized version of the Andean cross, known as a chakana. Detailed in beige, the chakana represents the link between this world and the world above. Fernando Cano includes in his design a gray border around the neck resembling an opening. The pullover is knit of alpaca, a warm, lightweight and soft fleece worn in the Andes since the days of the Inca Empire.

"Unusual design in an unusual material."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

If you get tired of the same old colors and the same old designs in men?s clothing, here?s a great option. Unique materials with unique, thoughtful designs make these products very appealing. And you get to render assistance to artisans around the world who have never before had the opportunity to market their goods outside their community. This alpaca sweater is handsome, well made, and a one-of-a-kind design...like nothing else I?ve ever seen. It immediately became one of my favorites. True to size as well. Why rely on tired corporate clothing design when you can get something unique and fitted to your individual taste? You?re one-of-a-kind, let your clothing choices reflect who you really are, instead of conforming yet again to styles that never really suited you...while helping to put money into the pockets of people who deserve to make a decent living. Corporate billionaires don?t need any more of your money...or mine.

"Cotton Blend Sweater"

Great sweater. I like the comfort of a well knit sweater without bulk, and this one has a comfortable, light-weight feel that is perfect for me. Easy to wear day or night. The design is pretty, flattering and not ordinary.

"Luscious Colors"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love the color combination and this sweater is cozy and WARM. The only downside is that the upper edge of the collar is a tad itchy on my neck. I have solved this problem by wearing a cotton turtleneck underneath. Once again, this is a unique item that I know I will enjoy.
