How do you wrap your ruana?
Traditionally, a ruana is a sleeveless four-cornered coat or blanket, with an opening in the center for the head and a slit down the front to the hem. What makes a ruana unique? It is specifically from the Andes region in South America. It is artisan, hand loomed by craftsmen using centuries-old techniques. It is, and always was, multi-functional - conceived as a coat but oft-used for seating as blanket or a cushion and for shelter.
