Cartero is part of the Juntos collection, a complete collection of coordinating adult/child garments and accessories.

Cartero is the coordinating children’s version of Mister Postman—with lots of kid-friendly details! A big snuggly hood makes it extra cozy, and loop-and-toggle closures at the front are playful and easier for little hands to work. The vertical pockets and garter stitch detail at raglan lines and faux side seams match the grown-up version, so boys and girls from baby to age 10 can coordinate with mommy.
