PONCHO MENS - PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Spanish word “poncho” likely came from the Quechua word “punchu” or similar words in other languages spoken nearby. While other cultures to the North may have adopted this look (eg, the more famous Mexican Poncho!), a visit to the hills around Cusco and the Sacred Valley makes it abundantly clear that the poncho is as native to Peru as the alpaca. 

This Poncho was inspired by the Gaucho cowboys of Argentina and also the striped Mexican Poncho... but  woven using traditional-style tightly woven, hand-spun alpaca wool, it suits even the coldest climates, after centuries of refinement in the harsh Andean highlands.

Who Made this South American Poncho?

This alpaca poncho was made in the high Andean village in the Patacancha valley at an altitude of over 4000m (13 123 feet) by an indigenous Quechua weaver who has been working with Threads of Peru since 2009.  All the women in these cooperatives recognise that their weaving ability has improved dramatically in these years, and are grateful to those that purchase their weavings.
