The Story Behind the Product
Isidoro C'cahuantico Mendoza says, 'At night, when everyone had gone home and I was left alone to sweep and clean, I began to look at the looms and machines and to experiment with them, just out of curiosity. That was one of the most important and memorable moment in my life! My curiosity led me into the world of textiles, looms and weaves. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed along to my children.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Its a very nice mid-weight wool cape. It can be buttoned down the front or flipped over the opposite shoulder, and the scarf part gives some nice, extra warmth on the neck. Perfect for over sweatersRead More
