We sell some great looking cotton and acrylic ponchos here at Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing. If you are looking for a festival poncho then you are in the right place. We have 2 different types for you – thick weave cotton and soft light weight acrylic. Both are great for keeping you warm on the cool days and cold nights.
What is a poncho?
A poncho is a great piece of hippy clothing designed to keep the body warm. It is an outer garment. This means that it is an outer layer that you would wear on top of the rest of your clothing.
Originating in South America these were originally worn by native Americans in places such as the Andes and Peru.
There are different types of poncho. The main 2 being the ones that we have here at Hippie Clothing HQ. One is for warmth and the other, designed not to keep you warm but to keep you dry. You will probably have seen these around usually black, bright yellow or see-through. You may have even used one yourself when trying to keep your favourite festival clothing dry when out and about.
Hooded ponchos are a favourite here at Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing, when it gets close to the witching hour and you are trekking around a festival field, a hood provides a great protection against the cold night air, just pop the hood up and you are good to go.
Most of our range come with hoods included. However, if a hood is not for you then we do have a great range of diamond shaped garments that have no hood. These are light weight and perfect for people who find hoods a little overbearing.
These heavy cotton hippy ponchos are sure to help keep you warm. Made from a lovely and thick weave cotton these ponchos really do look great
Our wonderfully warm ponchos
Each fabulous hippy poncho comes with a big nice big hood to help keep the back of you neck and your head warm and, a kangaroo front pocket. The kangaroo pockets are just great for keeping your hands warm and for storing little bits and pieces for those of you who don’t want to carry around a bag or pop all of your bits on your pockets.
There are also wooden toggles leading from the chest to the neck, I guess so that you can let in a little air if they keep you too warm. In addition to the toggles, there are little ties under the arms so that you can tie your poncho for extra added security. You could just leave them untied and let it hang free if you prefer as the weight of the poncho will help it hang.
These ponchos are handmade and so each one is slightly different making for a nice and unique item. All are handmade in Nepal from 100% cotton.
Our acrylic ponchos are made from a wide range of different coloured acrylic materials. The acrylic makes them light weight and easy to fold into a small parcel. This makes them easy to store when travelling around festivals.
These ponchos fit into your bag a lot easier than one of our cotton ponchos. Because of the lighter weight this means that they are also easy to carry. These acrylic ponchos are so soft and snuggly that once you put it on you will not want to take them off!
We have been advised that they also make amazing blankets that you can share with a friend. Which makes a great piece of hippie clothing that doubles up as another handy item ready to take to your favourite festival.
Although these ponchos are lightweight, don’t let this fool you into thinking that they are not warm because they are. Over here at Mystical Mayhem Hippy Clothing we own quite a few and they are just perfect.
