ABOUT THIS BACK STRAP LOOMED INDIGENOUS TEXTILE

This rebozo (shawl) is an authentic Haute Couture Mexican Indigenous Textile.  It can be used either as a garment or as a table runner or bedspread.  It was crafted by Purépecha Indigenous People from Michoacán, Mexico using the pre columbian back strap loom technique. 

The black fabric is 95% cotton with golden synthetic stripes and the hand knotted fringe is rayon with a silky & shinny texture. The Color combination is fresh and elegant and the piece can be used either as a fashion accessory or a home decor accent. 

Making each shawl takes years of knowledge and weeks of dedication. With your shopping you support the work of indigenous families, with whom we work directly on a fair trade basis.
