"Why did you choose this product?"
The Mocha Blossom Brown Black Mantle Cape is exactly what I've been looking for. This cape is very generously cut, making it extremely comfortable- not like restrictive jackets and coats. I have many alpaca items (that I've purchased in Peru), which I love because they are extremely warm. But, generally, they tend to be itchy. This cape is not itchy, at all. I love the versatility of this cape. I can dress it up or down-and since it's reversible, it goes with everything. I've been waiting for another cold day, here in Southern California, because I can't wait to wear it again. I'm so happy I purchase the Shawl Cape. I would recommend this to everyone....
This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

Isidoro C'cahuantico was born 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. 'I became enamored with the textile arts at first sight. At night, when everyone had gone home and I was left alone to sweep and clean, I began to look at the looms and machines and to experiment with them, just out of curiosity. The owner asked who kept adjusting the loom, and was surprised beyond belief to learn that the culprit was me. That was the beginning of a vocation, a great gift that I have now also passed along to my children.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

The cloak arrived only a few short weeks after I ordered it - a lovely surprise. It is not only gorgeous but very, very warm (which is a good thing considering our Canadian winters). I am so impressed with the quality of this item and recommend it to anyone thinking of buying one....Read More
A beautiful, warm gift that is very flattering on the plus size lady I gave it to. Comfortable, easy to wear and nice material.Being wearable on the reverse side is a bonus. It is so much easier to wear than a coat or jacket if you are wearing layers of clothing.The only reason that I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the item is non-returnable. I object to this, because I have high expectations of customer service, which would include returning an item that you are not satisfied with for any reason.Read More
