“Mailen is a name of Mapuche culture, in it’s language called Mapudungún (the language of the earth).  Mailen means princess, but it is not the same concept that is handled in occidental.

For the Mapuches, princess is synonymous with a powerful, noble and intelligent woman. The Mapuches or people of the earth, live in southern Argentina and Chile, in the territory they call Araucanía, since before the Spanish conquest. This project is in honor of them.”  -Designer by Cecilia Losada

This Sweater has a Top-Down construction, that is to say, it begins with the ribbing of the neck, then comes the short rows on the back, the yoke, sleeves and body are separated, the body is continued until the waist, pick up sts of arms and work until the ribbing.
This design has a positive ease of 15 cm approx. with respect to the bust measurement and 4 cm with respect to the arm circumference measurement, very loose boxy style, that is to say that you have to look well at your measurements and the final measurements of the garment, especially in bust circumference and arms to choose the correct size.
