The actual name for these small 'Ponchitos' is Siki Unku. This pattern is typical Quechua from Tarabuco in Chuqisaca. They are used for pastoral rituals and to celebrate the pujllay , the Carnival of the Tarabuco/Yampara people that takes place in March. Like all Ponchos in Bolivia, these are used only by men. However, on a woman they make a big satement by breaking the gender gap.
This is a vintage piece - this is a real unku that belonged to someone for likely decades. 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 'brandnew' items. We feel this adds to the beauty and uniqueness of these pieces, and we hope you do too.
