Mexican Ponchos - Hammock Heaven

Genuine Mexican Ponchos

Just like the sombreros we sell, ponchos are quite an iconic image of Mexico. At our shop in Noosa and in our online store we stock undoubtedly Australia’s biggest range of genuine Mexican ponchos.

All adult sizes are one size fits all. Falsa ponchos are the biggest, then Saltillo and lastly rayado ponchos are slightly smaller. For full sizes details check our website listings, drop into the store or call us.

Our range of ponchos is;

  1. The Saltillo (pronounced SAL-TE-YO). We also call this the party poncho as it is the brightest. It is a poncho that is essentially a Mexican sarape blanket with a hole cut out to put you head through (with a nicely sown border around the cut). In fact if you look at most authentic Mexican blankets you will notice a sown in decorative stripe or mark in the centre, letting you know where to cut if you want to mark a poncho. We have Saltillo ponchos available in many different colour themes.
  2. Rayado ponchos. These ponchos are also very colourful but have less stripes and feature a more dominant main colour with just a few stripes and designs in the lower half of the poncho. Made from the same material as saltillos, again we have these ponchos in a wide variety of colour options.
  3. Falsa ponchos. These are made from a different style of Mexican blankets, a looser and thicker weave, these are the style of poncho made famous by Clint Eastwood in all those westerns in the 60’s and 70’s. Again we have these ponchos in a variety of different colour themes including lot’s in the cowboy two tone browns so you can look just like Clint!


Great for winter or cooler summer nights, ponchos are fully reversible, very practical and really good fun! You always get a smile with a Mexican Poncho!

Mexican Blankets - Sarapes - Hammock Heaven

Mexican Sarapes, Serapes, or Mexican blankets

At Australia’s largest hammock shop we also stock Australia’s largest range of authentic Mexican blankets. Whether you are in Noosa and can come to the store, or you are shopping on line you can be assured no one has Mexican blankets and textiles in the range of colours, sizes and styles that we do.

At any given time we have over two thousand authentic Mexican blankets, rugs, floor rugs and more in stock. In traditional sarapes, the colourful striped blankets that Mexico is most famous for we stock two sizes and over 10 colour themes in each size. Then comes our range of loose weave Mexican “Falsa” blankets, hundreds of colours, these blankets are proving very popular for yoga blankets and yoga mats. Add to that our range of floor rugs with various designs, including lovely Aztec diamonds and pyramids, again in a huge variety of colours.

We know these blankets are the real deal because they are made in a co-operative in the same small town my parents live in. I’m Mexican and grew up with the kids of the families that make all our Mexican textiles and I am very proud to be helping them reach an international audience for their products. These blankets are all lovely and soft and we are able to sell them at a great price because they come straight from the weaving workshop to us, no middle men so no extra costs to cover.

Mexican blankets from Hammock Heaven make great gifts, eye-catching and unique they are great to give as presents. Use them as picnic rugs, beach blankets, table cloths colourful bed spreads, car seat covers for hot rods or anything else you can think of. They are very long lasting, machine washable and will last for years.
