Vintage Tecpan Ochre Handwoven Fabric Poncho: A Tapestry of Heritage


Step into the rich tapestry of Mayan culture with our Tecpan Ochre Handwoven Fabric Poncho. Crafted from organic soft cotton, this poncho is a harmonious blend of tradition and modernity. Let’s delve into the details:

  • Color: Warm ochre hues envelop the fabric, reminiscent of sun-kissed landscapes.
  • Geometric Embroidery: Intricate white, green, blue, and burgundy hand embroidery adorns the edges, forming mesmerizing patterns.
  • Versatile Design: The poncho is open on the sides, allowing you to wear it vertically or horizontally, depending on your mood.

Styling Possibilities:

1. Cultural Fusion:

  • Mayan Elegance: Drape the poncho over a simple black dress or a fitted jumpsuit. The geometric embroidery pays homage to the ancient Mayan symbols.
  • Artisan Market: Pair it with denim shorts, ankle boots, and chunky silver jewelry. You’ll embody the spirit of Tecpán’s vibrant culture.

2. Cozy Comfort:

  • Fireside Evenings: Wrap yourself in the soft cotton fabric during chilly nights. Wear it over leggings and a turtleneck for a cozy, bohemian vibe.
  • Weekend Getaways: Layer it over a long-sleeve tee and jeans for a relaxed, travel-ready look.

Tecpán Guatemala:

  • First Capital: Tecpán is known as the ‘first capital of Guatemala.’ It was the initial permanent Spanish colonial military center established in 1525. The Spanish chose this location due to the Kaqchikel Maya’s resilience during the Spanish conquest of Guatemala.
  • Iximché Archaeological Site: Just a few kilometers away lies the ruins of Iximché, the former Kaqchikel Maya capital city. Explore its high hill and connect with centuries of history.

Care Instructions:

  • Gentle Care: Hand wash the poncho in cold water using mild detergent.
  • Lay Flat to Dry: Avoid wringing or twisting. Lay it flat on a clean towel to dry naturally.
