I had a moment of deja vu. Where had I seen something strikingly similar? Oh right! there’s the Andean chullo

The chullo has been worn for centuries by the Aymara people in the Andes. But I guess llamas, vicuñas and alpacas are totally not like red moose on a dark blue background.

For the past decade and a half I have been making all my content available for free (and never behind a paywall) as an ongoing practice of ephemeral publishing. This site is no exception. If you wish to help offset my labor costs, you can donate on Paypal or you can subscribe to Patreon where I will not be putting my posts behind a lock but you'd be helping me continue making this work available for everyone. Thank you.  Follow me on Twitter for new post updates.
