This webshop helps you to source your Rebozos (the Mexican name) or Mantas (the Ecuadorian name), aka ‘baby wraps’ for Closing the Bones work or for baby wearing (or just for wearing as a shawl!). Rebozos (or their counterparts in other South American countries) have been part of pre- and postnatal South-American culture since pre-Hispanic times.
We offer beautifully woven rebozos that are 100% non-stretch cotton, hand-made on Mexican pedal looms, with bright colours and different patterns. We stock and offer different sizes (both different lengths and different widths), as well as different types of woven structures (referred to as “close weave” and “open weave”).
A rebozo typically consist of two parts: the main part, which is the woven part made in the loom, and then secondly the fringe. The woven part is made by men, the fringe by women. 
The process to create a finished piece can take a couple of days up to a few weeks. It starts with the thread being dyed, the cloth being woven and then finally the fringe is knotted by hand.
