In La Paz, Bolivia, two major characters help lead the festivities of Carnaval. Pepito is the trickster, and Ch’uta is an elegant ladies man. Accompanying them both are the Cholita Pacena, the women of La Paz, dressed in glitzed up variations on their traditional bowler hat and broad skirts, topped with a fitted jacket called a chaquetilla. Those decorative chaquetillas are the inspiration for this superfine alpaca cardigan in a range of midnight blues and greys. Features a hidden front zipper.
