        Comments about Catedral de Arequipa Pima Cotton Cardigan:

        I am giving the sweater 5 stars, but if I could rate the store I would not give them even one star.

        This cardigan is of very good quality, manufactured by a Peruvian company. Pima cotton is a type of cotton considered to be one of the finest blend of cotton but it is not a fiber to be used in cold weather. It is perfect for summer cool nights or spring time.

        Now I will explain why, despite being happy with the product, I will never buy from N.G. store again.

        I paid $15.95 for shipping and handling (regular mail) and $5 for a gift box but the sweater arrived in a gray plastic envelope, not even padded. Fortunately, it was a present for my husband and I could open it and wrap it properly.

        In response to my complaint N.G. gave me back the amount I paid for the gift box and credited me $5 of the original $15.95 shipping and handling fee "for my inconvenience". As a reference, a well known women's clothing store charges only $5.95 and their service is excellent.

        The real issue here is that N.G considers their careless shipping an "omission" that can be compensated by giving me $5 off their way overpriced S&H. In fact, it is a gross error that downgrades an expensive gift: nobody would think of giving a $151 gift in a grocery bag.

            Comments about Catedral de Arequipa Pima Cotton Cardigan:

            This garment is entirely useless as a sweater since it would not provide protection from the cold. If you hold it up to your eye you can actually see right through the material. This in not a man's sweater; it's a delicate decoration.

            I cannot believe National Geographic would be so irresponsible and misleading that they would not reveal in description that this was not a sweater that would provide and warmth and the material utterly insubstantial.

            A highlight of Carnaval in Oruro, Bolivia, is the Diablada, an elaborate choreographed dance that dates back to pre-Columbian times. Masked revelers act out a story of good versus evil. Their costumes often include belts decorated with silver coins, a meaningful symbol in this 500-year-old mining city. These overlapping coins are what inspired the pattern on our soft 100% pima cotton cardigan. Button front.

            One of Serbia’s most significant craft traditions are kilims, or flat woven rugs, made in the historic southeastern town of Pirot. They were a symbol of Serbian royalty in the early part of the 20th century, and they’re still used frequently at state functions. The geometric designs are so often imitated that they’ve been “trademarked” with a geographical indication, similar to the way that only sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France can truly be called champagne.

            Huayño is Peru’s most popular musical genre, blending rural folk with urban dance rhythms and themes of love, hardship, and longing for home that fans of American country music would recognize. The music and its dances have roots in the Inca Empire. Traditional huayño dancers wear heavily embroidered skirts and sashes, and these are the inspiration for our soft red baby alpaca cardigan, embellished with pima cotton embroidery in shades of goldenrod, dark blue, and sage. Hidden hook-and-eye closures.

            Our soft alpaca wool cardigan uses baby alpaca wool in a tailored style. A traditional material for Andean clothing, alpaca is both warm and lightweight. The fibers in this cardigan are fulled, a process using hot water and friction that gives the knit fabric strength and softness. Details include princess seams, faux patch pockets, and a buttoned tab on the back. Resin buttons display an interlocked Inca motif.
