Mangas is the Spanish word for “sleeves.”
The mountain people in the Andes wear
the most wonderful ornately knitted sleeves
over their clothing for warmth. They’re like
legwarmers for the arms. I fused this familiar
Peruvian silhouette with traditional British
Isle patterning, then added more color
and texture with some not-so-afterthought
embroidery. You don’t have to live in the
Andes to fight off the chill with stylish and
thoroughly modern mangas.
