Telar Poncho/Mañanita with Unraveling-One size
Poncho/Mañanita de Telar con Deshilado~ Our telar with unraveling ponchos are made with cotton threads using a back strap loom. First, the artisans make thread balls using a wooden warper. Then, they move the thread balls to a wooden loom and set thread by thread on it until it is tight. Afterwards, the artisans begin weaving the fabric using a back strap loom, held on one side from the wooden loom and on the other side by their waste. Finally, the artisans confection it into a poncho. It takes our artisan partners 24-40 hours (approximately) to make each poncho.
Important Note: Due to the high quality of our ponchos and the 100% artisanal process used to make each one of them, it is recommended that the poncho be dry cleaned only. If you decide to wash it by hand with cold water and gentle soap, know that the poncho might shrink 10-15%, since it has not been pre-washed.
