Nicole Alfieri is the owner/designer of Pico Vela. She is inspired by the magnificent colors of Italy and India and Japanese design. Our mission at Pico Vela is to create knitwear that is modern, unique, colorful and beautiful. We celebrate the creativity, spirit and individuality of women and strive to make knitwear that makes each woman feel beautiful. Pico Vela sweaters are made with our own proprietary blends of bamboo, cotton, linen, and viscose yarns. With each yarn combination we are trying to achieve a specific drape and color shade for that particular style, while taking advantage of the natural unpredictability of what happens to color and yarn as it moves through the machine during the knitting process.
