Long Open Weave Rebozo
Long Open Weave Mexican Rebozos in various colours (price include free postage in the UK only-please Price contact me for overseas postage costs)
This rebozo has a open weave pattern.
It is hand loomed by a small family artisan business in the Mexican region of Michoacán.
Ruth and Sabino, and their family members, run their small business together. They hand-dye the cotton then handloom the rebozos on traditional wooden looms. The backstrap loom weaving is done by women and the standing loom by men. Women do the fringe knotting.
The weavers use to only weave part time between growing crops and harvesting them, but they are now able to weave almost full time with the added market provided by this business, so they earn a better living and have a better quality of life.
Please note: Handwoven rebozos may contain some irregularities such as knots, nubs, slubs, slight changes of colour, or other little imperfections. This is due to the nature of the weaving process and the nature of the yarns used. Personally rather than seeing these as imperfections, I see them as a sign of the uniqueness of each piece.
This rebozo is made of 100% cotton, and is 250 cm long (plus a 20 cm fringe at each end) by 55 cm wide.
Washing instructions: these rebozos tend to release a lot of colour when washed. Please wash before use, a 30 or 40 degrees wash is fine. Please wash separately (I find adding salt to the wash helps fix the colour) and wash either by hand or on a handwash cycle the washing machine to avoid tangling the fringe.
