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—in shades of blue, ivory, and taupe—are what inspired the pattern on our soft 100% pima cotton cardigan. Button front.


Made in Bolivia. 100% pima cotton. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).


Hand-wash.

    I hate wearing blazers and this sweater is a perfect substitute. Form fitting, nice muted colors that work well with multiple bottoms (grey, black, tan). Nice light weight.

          This is a fine quality sweater and it fit well. However, the colors are NOT as pictured either online or in the print catalog. They are much darker and there is no ivory shade at all. Steel blue, taupe, and grays are predominant.

            The sweater is just beautiful, prettier than the catalog photo. The quality is excellent, worth the higher price. It is light enough to wear on a cool summer evening. Works well for dress and to wear with jeans. Even my husband commented on the beauty of the sweater. I would recommend this item.

              I fell in love with this jacket the second I saw it on the page of the catalog. I had to have it! And except for the fact that the lightest color was not white or off-white, as pictured in the photo, this jacket met and exceeded my expectations. It looks fabulous with denim and equally lovely with dressier fabrics. I'm delighted!

              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.

              A true Enlightenment undertaking, the Flora Botanica is an illustrated and comprehensive study of all the plants of Denmark. Soon after the project started in 1761, the Danish Crown Prince ordered a set of porcelain plates adorned with images from the Flora Botanica to be given to the Russian Empress Catherine II. Catherine died before the plates were completed, but the Danish royal porcelain company—Royal Copenhagen—completed the set, and the pattern has been in constant production ever since. The Flora Botanica itself took 123 years to complete. Our supremely wearable zip-front cardigan pays tribute to the exquisite designs of the Flora Botanica porcelains while retaining the functionality and comfort associated with modern Danish style.

              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 waxed-cotton hat is the perfect choice for drizzly days and travel in changeable climates. It’s lightweight and breathable enough to use regardless of the weather, and if gray skies turn to light rain, it’s just enough to keep you dry without carrying an umbrella—which can be a hassle for travelers who are already balancing cameras, guidebooks, and more. Handcrafted and tested in the misty climate of Donegal, Ireland.
