The Mexican poncho is a class clothing garment, known by people all around the world. This article talks about where you can buy one as well as historical information on the sarape (or zarape, which it’s infrequently called), which it’s known as in Mexico and other Latin American countries.
They are known for their beautiful and unique designs that are found on them. The color choices are impacted by the region where they are found. Many times the ends are fringed on these garments.
