As always, 100% cotton and 100% handmade.
Handwoven in a traditional Spanish foot-treadle loom, the frings are finised off by tying or knotting the threads, all by hand. A single rebozo may require up to 1,000 knots. Rebozos have a thread count of 3,800 to 5,000 threads. A single rebozo can take 10 artisans up to 30 days to make.
- Hand wash recommended.
- If you must, machine wash in gentle cycle. No tumble-drier, lay flat to dry, away from sunlight. Do not wring.
- Because rebozos are entirely hand made, very small imperfections may occur from time to time, however this is part of the charm!
Rebozos are made in the town of Tenancingo, 90km from Mexico City. Each thread is placed individuall on the loom before weaving. The whole process is time consuming, yet very eco-friendly and of low environmental impact.
Rebozos are not just scarves, they are unique, non-mass produced works of art. Non-disposable fashion, for those who care how their clothes are made.
Our mission is to play a small role in preserving these traditions for future generations by trading directly with the artisans, paying a fair price and donating 50% of all our profits back to the community.
