The serape provided warmth and protection against the elements. Serapes are known for their interwoven, striped colorful designs. The colors are typically warm and vibrant. The largest stripe is always the dominant color and is repeated throughout weave, along with secondary colors. A serape is usually made of a darker base color with smaller stripes or bands of colors.
