Tiwanaku Textiles Alpaca Sweater
Tiwanaku Textiles Alpaca Sweater
(Based on 13 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.

Men’s Bingham Silk and Alpaca Sweater
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.

Indigenous Bolivian craftsman translate grecas—repeating geometric patterns—from the traditional garments of the Tarabuco region in this 3/4-zip pullover. The design is an interpretation of barroco mestizo style, in which indigenous and Spanish cultures have struck an aesthetic balance. This lightweight and cozy 100% alpaca sweater is handknit by artisans in Bolivia.

French Mariner Sweater
French Mariner Sweater

Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

The iconic navy and white stripes of our French Mariner Sweater is based on a pattern originally intended for deep sea fishermen in Breton, but that has since been adopted by seafarers and yachtsmen across the ages. The sweaters were originally worn by “marchand d’ail,” sellers of garlic and onions who sailed from Brittany to England with their wares. Eventually the French Navy adopted the tight-knit wool design, but only sailors and new recruits wore stripes—officers alone were permitted to wear solid colors.

Panqara Alpaca Sweater
(Based on 1 review)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

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.

Scottish Classic Fisherman Sweater
Scottish Classic Fisherman Sweater
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

The guernsey sweaters worn by the men who fish the Arctic waters north of Scotland are as distinctive as those of their neighbors to the southwest in Ireland's Aran Islands. Our Shetland wool pullover is adapted from classic guernsey patterns, rendered in a jacquard knit rather than textured cables and diamonds.

Bolivian Stained-glass Alpaca Sweater
Bolivian Stained-glass Alpaca Sweater
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

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.

Serbian Kilim Sweater
Serbian Kilim Sweater
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

Serbian kilims are woven wool rugs traditionally used as floor and wall coverings, bedspreads, and curtains. The best kilims are like woven stories. Their colors and seemingly simple patterns represent things like tables, amulets, German boxes, French candies, lizards, and flowers. Artisans in Serbia translate these intricate patterns into a soft pullover sweater whose rich history is hidden in plain sight.
