I source my open weave or ‘drawn-work’ (‘deshilado’) rebozos from the Aguilar family in Mexico, who have been offering artisanal items in Mexico since 1970. The family personally dies their pieces using plant colourings. I only source 100% cotton woven rebozos from them as these work better for Closing the Bones work and support during pregnancy. These open weaves come in several sizes. I offer 2m and 2.5m ones.
These normal size ones measure 60cm x 200cm (with an added 25cm of hand-knotted fringe on either side) and weigh 285 grams each. They come in different colours.
