This rebozo or multifunctional shawl used by rural and urban women in Mexico and Central America is made by Amuzgo artisans in Xochistlahuaca Guerrero using home grown cotton to make a gauze in the back strap loom, an ancient portable tool. The piece is finished with intricate brocade made on the looom. The narrative of this textile follows the legacy of many generations as shown by the pre-Columbian codices that illustrate the same designes that we see today, mostly the triangles which represent butterflies and other geometric figures that represent roads as well as other animals and plants of the region. This piece is entirely handmade.
Size: 225 x 60 cm.
