Open Weave Rebozo
Open Weave Mexican Rebozos in various colours (price include free UK postage). Please note that I only ship rebozos to the UK
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.
It is made of 100% cotton, and is 180 cm long (plus a 20 cm fringe at each end) by 60 cm wide.
Washing instructions: these rebozos tend to release a lot of colour when washed. 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.
Price (including postage in the UK only) £45. Please note that I only ship in the UK due to pesky Brexit making sending abroad very complicated for small business owners
Returns: if, upon receipt of your rebozo, you aren’t satisfied with it, you can return it to me (in unused condition), within 14 days of receipt for a refund (minus the cost of postage). The return postage costs are to be paid for by buyer.
