This poncho. For festivals, and sets on the beach, for farmers markets and holidays in the sun. For turning days so grey upside down and letting a trail of deep magenta radiate behind you.
The prettiest of fuchsias divided by bold white ikat, a traditional resist dye technique used by the Mayans to incorporate patterns onto the fabric. Similar to tie-dye it is done before the yarn is woven.
It can take up to several days to create a panel of textile, it's an extremely intricate and time consuming art.
Made with 100% cotton, this poncho comes from Ketzali Accessories who work closely with 36 men and women artisans in Guatemala to hand make each woven piece with care and traditional skills.
Every piece purchased supports and empowers the artisans to improve their living standards for their families and communities.
We embrace the idea of Wabi-Sabi: beauty in the imperfect. These ponchos are handmade and therefore each unique in their own way. No machines means no perfectly straight stitches. Just strong knits made with strong, loving hands.
One size fits most.
Two variations on length depending if you want long and flowing or a bit shorter:
Long - 62" from sleeve to sleeve x 36" from neckline to fringes
