Details

By Luisa Villavicencio, this handsome sweater is cozy but lightweight. Ribbed textures are knitted of natural cotton in ivory with subtle green hues, with three capirona wood buttons. "My family cultivates cotton in several natural colors – jade, ixcaco (cocoa) and ivory, or crude cotton," the Guatemalan designer says. "In fact, people are surprised to learn that no dyes are used. The family is involved in the entire process, from growing the cotton, to weaving it and transforming it into apparel."

"not quite worth the price"

This sweater had a soft silky feel, but the v at the neckline was off-center. It also ran very small...I ordered the xl and had to return as the next size bigger was sold out.
