Kashmiri Aari Work Poncho


Poncho is an article of clothing of ancient origin, a cloak made of square or rectangle of cloth with a hole in the middle. The original poncho, consisting of a rough, brightly coloured, handloomed cloth, was worn in the early cultures of Latin America. Ponchos are worn with the edges hanging either parallel or diagonally, forming a diamond shape. The style also was adapted as rain gear, made of a waterproof material, and often hooded.


Alternative ponchos are now designed as fashion items. They are the same shape but of different material. They are designed to look fashionable and provide warmth and comfort, rather than to ward off wind and rain. These are often made out of wool and pashmina.
