Beautiful Alpaca sweaters from Made By...

This sumptuous sweater line was first revealed to us at a small NY fashion show by our friends at True Collaborative Fashion. TCF are the folks who represent Prairie Underground, as well as Pendleton and other superbly innovative lines. Made breathtaking, and created in natural alpaca colors. It's soft and fits wonderfully close to the body. My favorite is the first piece, "Granma's Love" shown here with the Prairie Underground Neo Country top. The second piece is a creamy white open cardy with mixed knits on the shawl collar and sleeve. The bottom piece is an open tie cardy in grey with a chic black pattern on the hem.

The Made By... concept is just at wonderful. As they write, "Our concept is to bring about a clothing line where we can practice respect and transparency to our Mother Earth also to our Artisans who make the clothes and raise standard of living for these talented individuals...At Made By... a profound gratitude for our Nature and our people frames our work. We are dedicated to practice fair trade. Made By... supports happy and healthy work environments free from forced labor. We choose Eco friendly and fair trade Alpaca yarns because it makes us part of an ancient and valuable heritage that holds the secret of preserving the equilibrium of our home planet, the Earth."
