The gray arm bands of this orange sweater for men feature a stylized version of the Andean cross, known as a chakana. Detailed in beige, the chakana represents the link between this world and the world above. Fernando Cano includes in his design a gray border around the neck resembling an opening. The pullover is knit of alpaca, a warm, lightweight and soft fleece worn in the Andes since the days of the Inca Empire.
