  • Incredible and rare piece of knit history!
  • This gorgeous light gray hand knit and hand loomed sweater by Filipina designer Lula Tan-Gan is a thing of beauty.
  • Features a ribbed shawl style collar with a single button closure, dropped shoulders, and an abstract face design on the front. The face is so familiar to me, but I cannot place what artist this is imitating! If you know, I would love if you could share it with me! 
  • The sleeve hems and the hem of the sweater are also ribbed.
  • Unlined, lightweight, no sleeves.

"Lulu Tan–Gan’s name has been synonymous with beautifully crafted knitwear fashion since 1985. A favorite of expatriates, tourists, and the jet–set crowd, the first two decades of Lulu’s career is marked by her iconic knitwear, which redefined the versatility of knits for the local fashion industry."
