Real Mexican Rebozos

Rebozo... what is that?!?!?!

A rebozo is a long flat garment used mostly by women in Mexico. It can be worn in various ways -just be creative!-, usually folded or wrapped around the head and/or upper body to shade from the sun, provide warmth and as an accessory to an outfit.

The Rebozo is also used to carry babies and large bundles, especially among indigenous women. Traditional rebozos are handwoven from cotton, wool, silk and rayon in various lengths and have fringe, which can be finger weaved into complicated designs.

The larger Rebozos are also used by Doulas for the Closing of the Bones which is a postpartum healing ceremony.

The garment is considered to be part of Mexican identity and nearly all Mexican women own at least one. It has been prominently worn by women such as our beloved Frida Kahlo. 

Give yourself the chance to try a rebozo and you will never regret it!
