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.
