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.

    I've purchased several items of clothing specifically for an upcoming Alaskan cruise. This is among my favorite pieces given its beauty as much as its astonishing craftsmanship. It's difficult fo find high quality North American garments. I'm incredibly happy that I stumbled across my new (and first) Ruana Cloak!

    Very stunning ruana. However, my skin is sensitive to anything itchy and I had to send it back. I did receive a full refund, thank you for that.

  • Secret garden reversible alpaca ruana
    Verified Purchase

    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 !!!!!!!!

  • Beauty and Quality in one!
    Verified Purchase

    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.

  • Secret Garden Alpaca Wool Ruana
    Verified Purchase

    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, NY

    The cape is made out of soft wool. It fits perfectly and will be a good addition to my stylish wardrobe. I will wear it to work and when out shopping and out to dinner. It folds nicely and will easily stay put on the back of a chair.

  • Q:

    "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."

    • A:

      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!
