This ruana has wonderful colors and lightweight. It fits beautifully over layers. It has served outdoors and in office settings--much more versatile than a cardigan! Many compliments on this piece.

I am very impressed with this garment. The colors and patterns are very intricate. It is finished nicely also. I will enjoy wearing it. The buttons on the sides help give the ruana shape.

This is beautiful--the photos cannot bring out the richness of the colors. This poncho is great with leggings or jeans. Easy to wear, can dress it up or down.
