This poncho come from the very fashion conscious Zinacantan. Textiles are important here and the color motifs and even techniques appear to change dramatically every few years! This poncho has been handwoven of many colors and metallic thread and then embroidered with the same in fabulous fanciful and sensual floral patterns. This earthy color way is no longer produced. The fringe at the bottom is fine and hand twisted.
These look lovely as wall hangings and can be simply hung with a dowel.

The wool that goes to make this shawls is raised locally and spun on small top style spindles. This was purchased from the woman that made it.
