Red Poncho of Casentino Wool

For three generations, one family is devoted to keeping alive the traditions of making unique Tuscan fabric, which is manifested in this exclusive handmade red poncho. The rough finish is achieved by brushing the wool with metal combs, and the result is exceptionally warm and water resistant. Back in medieval times, the peasants of the Casentino valley of Tuscany were forbidden by the Florentine wool guild from making fine, finished fabric. So the wool they made for their own use had a nubby texture, which lucky for them, proved to be far warmer and more durable than anything worn by the nobles. Today, Casentino wool is considered a luxury product. (Lobster and veal were once the foods of the lower classes too!) This handmade red poncho faultlessly blends together style and comfort through its luxurious material along with its stunning color. Indulge in our lavish red poncho. Carefully and exclusively handcrafted just for you, this poncho is the perfect addition to any wardrobe. Each red poncho handcrafted of Casentino wool measures 38 inches by 38 inches and fits most sizes.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
