Story Behind the Art:
'My story is really the story of my whole family, beginning with my parents,' says Guatemala's Luisa Villavicencio. 'My father was passionate about growing cotton, a crop that originated with the Maya. We work with only three pure colors. Apart from the crude cotton color, we use a seed known as ixcaco that produces brown cotton. We call our third color jade. All the rest of our colors are a result of combining fibers and threads from these three when weaving the fabric.'

The style and color are fine but I wanted the mterial to have more susbstance.Read More
This poncho was exactly what I was loking for. It is not too heavy, but it is warm, soft and cozy. The colour is true to the image but has more depth and even has a subtle mix of gold. The knit has a lovely weight and texture. While it looks nice on its own, it would also look great paired with a coordinating scarf if you'd like something extra on a cooler day. One note: the description on the web says it is cotton, but the poncho label says 100% alpaca, so it is wool! This makes it an excellent bargain. I also found the package took a long time to arrive, but it is worth the wait.Read More
The poncho is a very nice quality and fits very well. The only thing I was not very happy about, was how slow it was to ship.Read More
