    Story Behind the Art:

    Isidoro C'cahuantico Mendoza was in a village near Cuzco, Peru. During the 1970s, he was forced to migrate when terrorist activities swept his region. Accepting various jobs, he soon found himself working as a janitor in a textile factory. He began weaving at night until one of the weavers discovered his work and taught him formally. Now he hopes all his four children will develop the same passion.

  • Secret garden reversible alpaca ruana

    The material is soft and comfortable. The colors on both sides are deep and vibrant. There is not a lot of diffence between the 2 looks but it is defintely reversible which is nice. It has buttons down the front which is nice because sometimes cloaks tend to slide off. The attached scarf can be around your neck or just hang down giving it 2 different looks. It can be casual or dressy because of the rich colors. Love It !!!!!!!!

  • Beauty and Quality in one!

    I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my grandmother, a fashionable woman who has everything and of top quality. When I received it, I immediately tried it on and had to overcome my strong desire to keep it for myself. The material and workmanship was top class. I also liked that I supported an organization that helps tribes in I think, Peru sell their locally and uniquely made products. Truely an impressive piece that will fit larger or slim sized ladies of all ages. I would not recommend it for shorter ladies though that would be my own personal opinion and fashion sense only.

  • Secret Garden Alpaca Wool Ruana

    This is a beautiful and elegant ruana with buttons on one side only, although it is a reversible garment. As observed by another reviewer, the difference between the two sides is not that great. Contrary to what is advertised, this ruana is made of alpaca/acrylic not alpaca/wool. Nonetheless, this is not a deterrent to admire the craftmanship and design. It is a garment that is a classic and could be used for many years. Flavia, NY

  • Wool Ruana Cloak

    To own this cloak is to love it. This is one of the finest wool garments I have ever purchased. It is so soft and the handwork is amazing. I love it! I would love to own more!

  • I can hardly wait for the cold weather!

    The cape is made out of soft wool. It fits perfectly and will be a good addition to my stylish wardrobe. I will wear it to work and when out shopping and out to dinner. It folds nicely and will easily stay put on the back of a chair.

  • Not exactly as described

    Hi, I have looked at alpaca product before. This was not as soft and somewhat itchy . I am allergic to Wool and in few minutes of wearing a garment can tell you if it has any percentage of 100%. This has some wool in the garment. Very little, but it is there. It may be in the stitched trim..or it could be mixed into the alpaca. The weight of the Runa is light, it makes it very nice for evening or if you are wearing heavy clothes underneath. I have received lots of complements when wearing it. I would not use this as an everyday coat or wrap. Just for evening.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Color matched
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Not 100% alpaca, weight was lighter than expected, not a soft as expected
    • How accurate was the sizing? True

  • Rich colors and beautifully made

    Such a fun cloak! For dress up or down. It's a very nice medium weight wool that is perfect for those chilly days and nights, especially with the built in scarf. Wouldn't change a thing about this Ruana!

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Colors are rich cocoa and dark chocolate and just as warm. Thick wool and extremely well made.
    • How accurate was the sizing? Exact per discription
