Artisan Ana Fernandez of Peru designs this open cardigan of sumptuously soft 100% alpaca wool in a lovely palette of earth tones. Each stripe is a different intricate geometric pattern inspired by traditional motifs.
About her work, the artisan says, "For me, designing is a fusion of ideas. I blend fashion trends with my own favorite sources of inspiration, which are Victorian textiles and our Peruvian culture. I love designing apparel of alpaca wool and cotton because this really makes a contribution to society. It lets me give jobs to local people, especially women who want to get ahead and move to central Peru seeking a better future.”
