Striped Mexican Shawl Rebozo Backstrap Loomed by Tzotzil Indigenous Women

$200.00 USD

ABOUT THIS MEXICAN INDIGENOUS TEXTILE

This Cotton rebozo has an original striped pattern. It can be used not only as a shawl or wrap, but also as a table runner or bed spread. It was crafted by Tzotzil indigenous women from Chiapas, Mexico using the pre hispanic backstrap loom technique. Mexican shawls are Rebozos; one of the most important folk art indigenous textile traditions.  Making each shawl takes years of knowledge and days of dedication. At our gallery you will find this and many other rebozos for sale.
