- Isidoro C'cahuantico replicates Inca glyphs for the elegant design of this warm alpaca wool poncho

Artisan Isidoro C'cahuantico Mendoza was born on 4 April 1954, in a village near Cuzco. 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. 'I was completely fascinated with the work they were doing!' Isidoro recalls. 'I became enamored with the textile arts at first sight. 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.'
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.

The poncho can be dressed up or down - it is perfect for a casual, backyard dinner with friends, or dressed up with a pair of black boots and leggings for work or dinner out. It's really quite an elegant design. I love it! Perfect for cool days and chilly nights. I also wore it to receive visitors when I was laid up in bed with a broken leg! It's reversible, but I like to wear it with the predominantly black colour on the outside.You could even use it as a throw on your sofa - to snuggle into when watching a movie or TV. It's smart, soft and authentic.Read More
Looks very cute. It is different....one of a kind look. It sheds alot...cant wear a fabric which the wool clings to or you need a lint brush.Read More
