“Is that a real poncho” … I mean, is that a Mexican poncho or is that a Sear’s poncho?”

						-by Frank Zappa

Actually these are CCCozy ponchos.

The poncho had humble beginnings (unambiguous genesis) as it was one of the typical clothes of the Paracas, a Peruvian, pre-Inca Culture around 500 B.C. The Poncho, nowadays, is commonly associated with the Americas. Ponchos are an enduring favorite, the world’s most versatile garment, a perfect cardigan alternative, slipping in & out of fashion since the late 1800’s and are important trends in mainstream fashion these days.

Traditionally woven from Llamas & alpaca hair, a poncho consists of a square or rectangular piece of cloth, essentially a blanket, with a hole in the middle for the head. This concept is seen in some form on nearly every continent. As traditional clothing, the local names and variants are:

• Poncho, most of Spanish-speaking countries and worldwide

• Chamanto, only in central Chile, poncho in the north and south

• Jorongo, usually larger or full-length, and often used for special occasions or horse-back riding

• Gaban, typical in Michoacán, Mexico

• Ruana, in cold regions of Colombia and Venezuela

• Zarape (pronounced "serape" in English, sometimes "sarape"), a poncho made in the Mexican state of Coahuila in north-eastern Mexico, near the city of Saltillo

• Poncho chilote, a heavy woolen poncho of Chiloé Archipelago
