The poncho is a classic. Originally popularized by Native Americans of The Andes, ponchos have been around for centuries as a versatile layering staple and are seen all over the world. This poncho is made of 100% cotton and is garment dyed for a rich color. This textile is heavy and sturdy yet remarkably comfortable to wear on colder days or more openly on warmer days. Great for winter in Los Angeles or spring and fall in Europe. This item is classy enough for evenings but can also be casually worn at home. Good for meditation purposes.
