Steve Getzwiller  "These were the best I could find for my collection.  The best I could get my hands on.  It was professionally  cleaned and restored after I bought them.,  I Spared no expense on the restoration." 

Saltillo serapes were worn by wealthy gentlemen, landowners and horsemen who  took pride in their pure Spanish descent.  Woven of cotton and wool in two panels with distinctive design structures, a serape required as much as two years to weave and was an expensive purchase.

Very likely originated as a riding garment. Its use was closely associated with the huge haciendas which developed in the 18th century and were particularly powerful around Saltillo.
