The “rebozo” (shawl) is an iconic garment of Mexican women, used since the pre-Hispanic times, not only because its beautiful, but of use in essential key moments in their life, such as lulling or carry their baby, as part of a wedding Rousseau, and even after passing away. It also has utilitarian purposes such as carry firewood and vessels of water.
Most of them are made in family owned workshops by artisans who express their creativity and feelings.
Nowadays, the artisanal production of shawls faces many challenges due to industrialization, limited diffusion, high cost of production, new trends and the lack of interest from younger generations to know and get involved in this tradition. That’s why we are reinventing it, proposing new ways wear it, hoping that more people find it valuable and feel proud to own one.
