Nogueira Sweater

$ 8.00

The Nogueira Sweater was inspired by a small neighborhood in the city of Petropolis, in the mountains of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The cooler temperatures and abundant nature of the place make this neighborhood a very popular weekend destination during Brazil’s fall and winter months.
