Seller: artisana (650) 100%, Location: Brattleboro, Vermont, Ships to: US, Item: 223690398210 We assume this highly unusual antique wool poncho is from Latin America, but we have no idea of its precise origins. We also assume the weaver was Native American, but again, we don't know for sure. So please study the photographs and come to your own conclusions. Although damaged, the poncho it is still beautiful. The colors are unusual and outstanding, as is the weaving technique. Two very different types of wool were used. The delicate multi-colored decorative bands and elements are so finely woven from a (assumed) wool that is so fine and soft that it does not seem like wool. The brown, black and white body of the poncho is more conventional wool, but remarkable for its softness and the extremely fine texture of the weaving. Bidders, please note: free shipping is for the USA only. We will ship outside of the USA, but shipping costs must be calculated by destination after the auction. If you are outside of the USA, we recommend that you try to calculate the shipping costs to your country before you bid. Condition: Please study the photographs. This very old and exquisite weaving does have many condition problems. There are numerous holes. The largest is about 1/3/4" long by about 3/4" wide (about 5cm x 2cm). Most of the holes seem to be in 1/8" x 1/4" range (about 5mm x 1cm). There are losses along the fringed edges. There is some loss of stitching at the poncho's opening. The worst damage occurs at the edge of the poncho's opening, a hole that has separated from the edge of the opening; it is about 1 3/4" long and about 3/4" wide. The poncho has a slight musty odor. Likely it has normal age-related soiling., Maker: Assumed Latin American Native American, Material: Hand-loomed wool, Original/Reproduction: Original, Color: Multi-Color
