Bolivian Poncho Tarabuco , from Potosi Bolivia, Vintage Textile, Collectible Item 50" x 57"

This ethnic group lives southeast of Sucre, in central Bolivia, and represents one of the country’s prominent traditional cultures. Throughout the centuries Tarabuqueños have woven their own clothes using distinct weaving patterns. Tarabuco men are recognizable by their k’uychis, ponchos woven with rainbow-patterned stripes – the tones of these stripes indicate the place of origin of a poncho.

This pieces that is nearly new in condition though purchased in the late 80's - but like all of our products this is a real poncho that still belonged to someone. We take great care in hand selecting the pieces we choose and while for the most part they are in amazing conditions, these have been loved and used for many many years and therefore aren't perfect 'brand new' items. We feel this adds to the beauty and uniqueness of these pieces, and we hope you do too.
