Story Behind the Art: Artisan Alfredo Falcon tells of his craft, 'When I was but a small child I learned from my parents the best weaving techniques. And like me, they had learned them from their own parents. This makes us a family entirely devoted to the world of textiles, and we have been for generations. Nowadays I combine weaving by hand and on classic machinery, remaining true to Inca and colonial motifs. I would like for the world to receive through my work high quality products, with modern colors and traditional motifs.'

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
be warned - if you unwrap this cape, looking for soft alpaca comfort and feel, you'll be disappointed. the acrylic rules the fabric mix - it's quite scratchy. I returned the one I ordered, having had found softer wraps/capes elsewhere for same/less price.
This shawl is lovely...definitely high quality and elegant. It's a bit heavy, but sure to be warm. The styling is simple enough that it can be worn for business, dressier events or with jeans. I know I'll get my money's worth with this purchase!
The coloring is jet black and not a washed out black. Fabric is warm, yet not too heavy. It is so versatile. I've used it as a wrap with formal attire, with a suit for a business function, and with jeans for a basketball game. Easily folds across a chair, in carry- on luggage, or on a grocery cart. Can be used as a blanket on a flight.
This item is beautiful—Loved the style. It's nice and long and everything about it is great, except that it's rather bulky to pack and the knit is not very soft. I was looking for something to throw in my bag on trips, but the knit is thick, and it's not very warm because of the acrylic content. I have a cashmere wrap that is a similar style. It's much warmer and of course softer. I would like this ruana made in an all natural softer yarn—the style was perfect.
