Tiwanaku Textiles Alpaca Sweater
Tiwanaku Textiles Alpaca Sweater
(Based on 12 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters
In the Bolivian high plains, amid the snowcapped Andes, the pre-Inca Tiwanaku culture thrived for more than 500 years. So far only a fraction of the civilization's ruins have been excavated, yet it has yielded some of the earliest and more remarkably well-preserved textiles found in the Americas. Their art features highly abstracted figures, that originally expressed real places, animals, or cultural events but over time became icons with symbolic meaning. The high degree of abstraction in the art of Tiwanaku has inspired several art historians to compare their art to modern abstract movements, including Cubism. The intricate, interlocked geometric patterns on this alpaca fiber sweater are adapted from woven Tiwanaku tunics made around 500 A.D.

Irish Wool Military Cardigan
Irish Wool Military Cardigan
(Based on 9 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters
This hearty forest green cardigan takes its inspiration from military-style Irish sweaters, often worn by volunteers who fought with the British in WWII. Although Ireland was neutral and relations with Britain were strained, thousands of men and women chose to join the Allied cause as members of the British Royal Army and Merchant Navy, or by working in British factories. Our contemporary version uses rich leather to enhance frequent wear points, ensuring years of rugged outdoor wear. Leather shoulders help keep expedition gear and luggage straps from slipping off. Front slash pockets add functionality and make this sweater an alternative to a jacket on milder winter days. Pure Irish wool, knit in Ireland.

Belvedere Palace Wool Jacket
Belvedere Palace Wool Jacket
(Based on 6 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Jackets and Vests
The grounds of Vienna's Belvedere Palace have hosted one of Europe's greatest gardens since Belvedere was designed in the early 1700s. Topiary-lined avenues exist alongside the emperor's baroque private garden. This double-faced boiled wool jacket is designed with the same traditionally Austrian combination of elegance and exuberance. The classic Austrian cut emphasizes a design heritage as refined as the garden's formal walkways, while scrolling velvet trim along the collar, hem, and sleeves adds a playful spark to a sophisticated style. The wind-resistant and wrinkle-free natural fiber is ideal for travel.
