Wow! This is a fabulous hand woven poncho/cape that was made using the “rag rug” technique. That being said, the weave on this piece is finer and tighter than your typical rag rug and the intricacy of the pattern and colours are exceptional. Pieces like this were part of the movement to hand make products as part of a rejection of machine made disposable fashion and typically would have been worn by a member of the youth culture or a so called “hippie”. The cape has arm openings and simply fits over the head. It has a narrow collar and does up the front with four loops and hand made wood buttons, each button decorated with a leaf design. The piece is unlined
Age: 1960s
Material: I think cotton
Sizing: No size is indicated, but this should fit a range of medium to large sizes - please rely on the following measurements for fit, taken from the exterior:
Neck: 17 1/2” around the top edge
Shoulders: 17” across, from shoulder seam to shoulder seam
Chest: 50” around, must accommodate the arms
Hips: 64” around
Bottom: 80” around
Overall length: 34”, taken down the centre front
Side length: 31"
Condition: This cape is in very good condition with no wear, holes, tears, odors or staining except that two of the button loops are unraveled - they still work but it would be a good idea to work on these, shouldn’t be difficult to put back to original state. Otherwise, this piece is clean and very solid - this will last for years with common sense handling
This is a wonderful piece, very unusual as I haven’t found any other examples like it,….excellent quality, really a striking piece of workmanship that I’m sure that people will notice and comment on!
