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.
Available sizes: Medium, Large, XLarge, XXLarge

Women's Irish Aran Turtleneck Sweater
Women's Irish Aran Turtleneck Sweater
(Based on 8 reviews)
Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

For hundreds of years, women in the rural villages of the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland have knit natural wool sweaters for their fisherman kin. Although the myth that you can identify island families by the stiches in their sweater—like a Scottish tartan—isn't true, every knitter does have her own special patterns, passed down through generations of mothers and grandmothers. At weekly gatherings, they continually invented intricate new stitches.

Alpaca wool was once reserved exclusively for Inca royalty, but over the centuries the soft, lightweight, and antistatic, superfine fibers have become a staple of Andean textile tradition. Handwoven of 100% alpaca on simple looms in a contemporary plaid with hand-twisted fringe.
