This poncho can be worn in the traditional fashion with the v-neck in the front, or give it a 180 degree twist and it takes on a whole new shape. Add some extra pizazz by turning it on a diagonal. It can also be easily converted into a ruana by simply opening the front seam. You can really have some creative fun when you put your own stamp on it by adding a variety of accessories -- looks good with a scarf, necklace, or whatever inspiration strikes you.
This Baule textile from Ivory Coast is made of handwoven, dyed cotton. The background is a medium-dark gray striped with soft gray and light blue. Additionally, it is embellished with colorful embroidery. Both hems are fringed.
Due to the way strip cloth is assembled, it is natural that over time some areas along the seams may separate. It is minor imperfections such as these that imbue these vintage, collectible textiles with unique character, shaping the individual personality of each piece.
Please note that all our products are meticulously handmade by master artisans one piece at a time. Due to this process, there may be a slight variation from one item to the next.

Please note that the jewelry in some of the photos is not included with purchase of the Poncho, but can be purchased separately if still available.
