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.

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.Read More
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!Read More
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 !!!!!!!!Read More
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.Read More
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, NYRead More

Questions & Answers
It's beautiful. And, at least on the surface, it looks like it is made in a fair trade workshop.
I would love to buy this cloak for my friend for her 60th birthday, she is a size 24/26 so quite a large lady, would this cloak fit her I do not see any size allocation.
Hello Susannah, this poncho is a one size fits most item. However, it extends to the range of women's regular sizes, which is to say about up to a women's size 16. It may be too small for a size 24/26. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thank you for shopping with us!
