 Los trajes regionales

Ponchos and chullos are examples of traditional garments that have become known outside the region where they originated (i.e., the Andes).  A poncho is a rectangular sheet of fabric with an opening for the head in the center.  Hoods are added to some ponchos to ward off wind and rain.  A chullo is a wool hat with earflaps.  Today, ponchos and chullos have become fashion items in many countries throughout the world.
