Traditional patterned Mexican Rebozo (long length)
Handmade traditional patterned Rebozo
These rebozos have a rhomboid pattern
They are 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 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.
They are made of 100% cotton, and are 3 m long (plus a 20 cm fringe at each end) by 60cm cm wide.
Washing instructions: these rebozos tend to release 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.
