This jorongo or full length Mexican poncho is made in the municipality of Santo Tomas Ocotepec in Oaxaca. The hand spun sheep wool becomes a textile through the use of the back strap loom, an ancient portable tool that embraces the weaver's waist. The colours are natural white and deep red called cochineal and obtained from a parasite that lives in the cacti and is extracted since ancient times for its value as currency and sacred colour. This piece is entirely handmade.
One size. Dry clean only.
