Shop Mexico: The Artisan Sisters Week 8–Red Ikat Rebozo (Scarf)

Today we offer for sale a beautiful handwoven cotton scarf/shawl from Tenancingo, Mexico, measuring 72″ long and 30″ wide.  It is a warm tomato red. This is a traditional ikat rebozo that women wear all over Mexico.  For them, it has many useful purposes — as a cover-up to stay warm, as a folded head covering to shield the face from the sun, as a carrier for babies and toddlers, and as a carrier for market items.   Ikat is a technique where both the warp and weft threads are intermittently dyed and when woven.  The fabric has a shimmering pattern that runs through it.  The punta or fringe is hand-tied after the piece is woven.  For us, this rebozo can serve as a scarf or beautiful shawl to drape around the neck or shoulders, or use it as a table runner or accent on a piece of furniture.  Item #7162012.1, $85 plus $5 shipping to anywhere in the U.S.  Speak up fast if you want it!

 

Come to Oaxaca in February for a felting workshop with clothing designer Jessica de Haas.  We will make handmade wool felted rebozos and quechquemitls.
