Rebozo class

The rebozo is a warm Mexican hug. The loom, the fabric, the colored threads are the manifestation of the soul of the prehispanic world. The rebozos are a mosaic of feelings, drawings, affection, deep breaths in colorful threads. The rebozo is to be worn with pride and dignity.

Get involved with a new way of using and approaching the rebozo and make valuable connections. 

We can come to you!

Overview

Empowering Communities through ancestral techniques.
The rebozo is a Mexican garment used as an identity cloak that holds power & empowers people, the rebozo has been used since before the conquest by the native communities of Mexico. This element is made on an artisanal back strap loom, taking anywhere from 3 weeks to a year in its elaboration—depending on the quality, complexity and length.
The rebozo is a symbol of resistance, resilience and power of the original towns in America, the Rebozo can help you during different stages of your life, there are many ways you can learn about it, but if you want to do it correctly look for an indigenous teacher or someone whose lineage is directly connected to the artisans and teachers who have suffered and they are still struggling to preserve this element.
With the rebozo we can help to develop a sense of safety, privacy, and support, but maybe we may not need for any type of extra intervention, medical or traditional, one should only ‘get involved’ when there were clear signs that help was needed.
