*The color combination changes on every side of the poncho

Ruana or poncho is a garment that was equally worn by masters and Indians in the time of the fight for independence.  Is traditionally made of wool and it was perfect for the cold weather around Cundinamarca, Nariño y Boyaca in Colombia.  It’ been a multipurpose piece, it can be used as a blanket or as a pillow, and today you can spot it full of colors walking down runways around the world, taking distance from the traditional brown and gray

This poncho is woven using wool and cotton and traditional looms.  You can use a belt around your waist to make it more elegant or wear it alone and let it take the spotlight

The weaving is done by 6 women in Anserma , Caldas, who sit around their looms united by their passion and love for this traditions and share a good coffee and lots of stories, while they create one by one, ponchos, scarf and many more pieces each with a unique color combination.

CARE:  This handmade garment so it deserves special care.  Wash it by hand with a soft soap, do not scrub hard or wring it.  Set it to dry on a flat surface in the shade to prevent the fibers from stretching.  The weaving is very delicate so be careful with rings, bracelets and watches that could get caught accidentally.
