Irish Wool-cashmere Aran Cardigan Sweater
Irish Wool-cashmere Aran Cardigan Sweater
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

In the early 1900s, enterprising women living on the Aran Islands took the sweaters they had knit for generations of fisherman kin and started marketing them around the world. Today the classic cable stitches of Aran knitters are a worldwide symbol of Irish culture. The wool blend features just enough cashmere to make this winter-white cardigan luxuriously soft to the touch.

Women's Merino Wool Irish Cardigan
(Based on 24 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters
This cozy merino wool sweater is a virtual sampler of Irish Aran knitting patterns. Each pattern symbolizes an aspect of local fishing culture: Celtic rope for Irish pride; fisherman's cable for safety on the waters; basket stitch for a plentiful catch; and diamond, the shape of a fishing net, for success. The warm wool is renowned for its extremely soft hand, providing warmth and comfort without the itch of lower-quality fibers.

The Guaraní people are an indigenous cultural group who live in Paraguay and parts of Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Bolivia. Before European contact, the seminomadic culture didn’t have a written language. The pattern on this lightweight alpaca cardigan is taken from a pictogram for water found on textiles in the Guaraní Museum of Bolivia. The 3/4-sleeve design features a hand-crocheted border and resin buttons.

A highlight of the trek to Machu Picchu is entering the dense, humid ceja de selva, the “jungle’s eyebrow,” just before entering the 15th-century Inca site. Our alpaca sweater features designs inspired by the flora found in this lush landscape, including orchids, bamboo, and the pisonay tree, considered sacred by the Inca. Hand-embroidered details and knit buttons are stitched in pima cotton.

Oruro Carnaval Pima Cotton Cardigan
Oruro Carnaval Pima Cotton Cardigan
(Based on 3 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

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.

(Based on 1 review)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

Artisans in both Belgrade and Blace, Serbia, make our cotton cardigan with allover floral patterns inspired by the embroidered skirts and aprons (called pregace) of Serbian folk costume. It was not uncommon for women in rural villages to wear traditional dress every day as recently as the 1980s.

Pirot Cotton Cardigan
Pirot Cotton Cardigan
(Based on 2 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

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.

Aster Alpaca Sweater
(Based on 5 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

In the Andean Altiplano of Peru, artisans have been knitting with soft, lightweight alpaca fiber for centuries. Aymara and Quechua artisans in Peru use an alpaca blend to create a dark brown cardigan with a blue and turquoise pattern of asters flowing from the hem and sleeves. A single bloom graces the back of the sweater. Made entirely on hand looms, the sweater is embellished with hand-knit scalloping at the cuffs and hem, and hand-painted ceramic buttons. Light, soft, easily packable, and wrinkle resistant.

Jauja Alpaca Cardigan
Jauja Alpaca Cardigan
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

The Peruvian town of Jauja briefly flourished as the capital of Spanish Peru. The Inca riches that Pizarro and his men found there even lead to the legend that Jajua was a land of luxury. “Pais de Jauja” has become a Spanish expression for a mythical land of leisure and excess, but today the real Jauja is a quiet colonial town with fewer than 20,000 residents. The lacy patterns on our alpaca-blend cardigan are inspired by the Baroque and Rococo architecture of the 1564 Jauja Cathedral. Features a hidden front zipper.


Available sizes: Small, Medium, Large, XLarge

Peruvian City and Sea Cardigan Sweater
Peruvian City and Sea Cardigan Sweater
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

While visitors to Peru often spend time in Lima and Arequipa, fewer make the trip to the country’s sweeping Pacific beaches. This baby alpaca cardigan is inspired by city and sea alike: The pattern on the cuffs and hem is adapated from baroque cathedral decorations in Arequipa, while a red ruffle peeks out like a wave lapping at the shore. A single button secures this flyaway-style cardigan.

Norwegian Kara Wool Cardigan Sweater
(Got it? Rate it.)

For more than 130 years, Dale of Norway has produced some of the finest wool sweaters and outerwear in the world. The classic Scandinavian pattern of this blue and white cardigan is inspired by 19th-century Norwegian designs from the villages of Tromsø and Vardø. These were the final ports of call for the Fram expedition that took famed explorer Fridtjof Nansen from Norway across the largely uncharted Kara Sea toward the North Pole.
