A vision of elegance and cozy warmth, this cloak is imbued with Peruvian chic. Nestor Yana designs this piece based upon the traditional cloak of the Andean highlands. The cloak features a delicate floral border crocheted by hand. A matching scarf is sewn to the cloak, which fastens with four ornate buttons.

Yana also calls this cloak kusa, which in the Aymara language refers to Peru's unique purple-colored corn, used in the preparation of chicha, a drink. Made in Peru.

I love purple and this purple is truly royal. It is so well made and so beautiful. It is too hot here to wear it outside yet. So I was wearing it inside with the air conditioning! And I was still warm in it! This is a must have as far as I'm concerned!

I Love, Love, Love this and can't wait to wear it. The picture doesn't do it justice. It's far more beautiful than the pictures. It is stunning and that's not a word I use often. It will be a toasty addition to dinners and theatre this winter.
