Men’s Bingham Silk and Alpaca Sweater
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

Knit by artisans in Arequipa, Peru, this pullover’s incredible softness comes from a blend of baby alpaca fiber and silk. The striped pattern and blue, brown, and gray hues are inspired by the terraced landscape of Machu Picchu. A local Quechua boy led Hiram Bingham to the site in 1911, and National Geographic research grantees explored and mapped the site over the next several years.

Tiwanaku Textiles Alpaca Sweater
Tiwanaku Textiles Alpaca Sweater
(Based on 14 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.

Almost 500 years after the Spanish conquest, Andean culture is a strong blend of colonial art and architecture with indigenous Aymara and Quechua traditions. This warm and lightweight alpaca sweater, named after the Aymara word for flower, combines Baroque patterns found in Jesuit churches with warm, earthy colors inspired by the Altiplano and dry valleys of Bolivia.

Stained glass, vitrales in Spanish, is an important part of barocco mestizo style, the blend of Spanish and indigenous architecture found throughout Bolivia. Congregations that couldn’t afford true stained glass would mimic it with paint. The hand-shaped leaded outlines of these intricate windows are the inspiration for the pattern on our gray-green 100% alpaca crewneck sweater.
