Collection: Mexican Rebozos (Shawls) & Ponchos

A Rebozo (shawl) is a fringed rectangular cloth segment. It is between one and three meters long and is adorned with colourful hand embroidery. It was created by the fusion of the pre-Hispanic and Spanish native culture. Before the arrival of the Spaniards, the natives used the ayate. This sparse cloth was made up of two long maguey cloaks and was used to transport objects and children. Also, the cotton mamatl was used as a canvas to transport merchandise.

The evolution of this garment was caused by the Spanish influence, as the mestizos, natives and slaves began to weave replicas of the manila shawl and the mantilla. In the eighteenth century, the word rebozo signified: mantilla used by women to cover themselves. During the revolution, the rebozo became popular and became the symbol of Mexican women since most used it to carry their children and shroud the deceased. In some places, instead of giving an engagement ring, the woman was given a shawl.
