I only have a few of these and they are lovely beyond what I could likely write but I will give it a go ~ These Ponchos are hand woven, hand dyed, hand embroidered by women generations ago and passed down through the families. Occscionlly one will be retired and I just happened to run into someone there who had several from families in his and neighboring villages. What luck! So I have added several pictures of each, the poncho as a while and close ups of the embroidery. These are one of a kind and can be worn, they do show some wear due to their age. most is small imperfections, hanging threads or articularly at the neck are a little bit rough but not super noticable except at close inspection. A turtleneck or high colored shirt would take care of that!Also keep in mind that Guatemalan women are small in build and stature so these aren't real long. If you are a collector of rare and unusual as well as beautiful work, these are a must have!
