Story Behind the Art:

Peruvian artisan Isidoro C'cahuantico was forced to migrate in the 1970s when terrorist activities swept his region. 'I found a job as janitor in a textile factory. I was completely fascinated!' he says. 'At night, when everyone had gone, I began to experiment with the looms. The manager caught me and said I should start by learning how to assemble a loom. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed on to my children.'

  • Make the scarf separate and removable.

    I've very pleased with this poncho, except for one thing. I would prefer that the scarf NOT BE ATTACHED to the poncho. it would be a little more versatile. I have some beautiful chunky jewelry I would like to wear but with the scarf attached it won't show. Perhaps you can persuade the mfg to consider this. I do see it without the scarf, but I like the scarf look. but just make it detachable.

    Even though it's only 50% Alpaca and 50& acrylic , the acrylic actually seems to add to it's softness , durability and washability . Now shut my mouth , I wouldn't recommend an acrylic anything if I didn't believe it !

  • Poncho

    Very soft alpaca wool - nice design and well made. Extremely pleased. Only con is I might prefer one with a front opening - buttons, zippers - this goes over head to put on or off - a MINOR inconvience.
