Details

Shading delicately from taupe to deep graphite grey, this voluptuous poncho features three rows of chakanas from pre-Hispanic Peru. An astral symbol, the chakana symbolizes order in family and community life; it is taken from a constellation of stars. Isidoro C'cahuantico works in a luxurious blend of alpaca wool, renowned for its lightweight warmth.

"A Staple in My Wardrobe"

I wore my Ruana to Washington, DC and received many compliments for its beautiful colors of deep green and blue. Its very warm and was the perfect light cover for a fall day viewing Smithsonian museums. I feel very elegant wearing it.
