serape definition and meaning

What is a "serape"?

A serape is a long, colorful, and often fringed blanket-like garment worn over the shoulders like a shawl. Originating in Mexico, it was traditionally woven from wool and designed to provide warmth on cool desert nights. The serape typically features bright colors and geometric patterns, and it can be worn by both men and women. In modern times, the serape has become a popular fashion item and is often used as a decorative throw or wall hanging.
