This everyday poncho was woven by Epifamia Phacsi Mamani for her son, who wore it for a number of years until the family needed to sell it for cash needed during the pandemic due to months of quarantine. This poncho is much softer than most Q’ero ponchos and shows a little wear. See the photo of a small hole. When you purchase this poncho, you are connecting to Epifamia, her son, and their challenging life in their home village o Hapu Q’eros. Dimensions: 27.25 inches across x 44.5 length (total = 54.5 x 89). 70.5 cm across x 113 cm long (total = 141 x 226).
