Hecho a mano
con amor


The rebozo is known as a Mexican shawl that has different purposes throughout a woman’s life: it can be worn a certain way in her young adulthood to indicate that she is available for marriage, it can later be used as a cradle for the baby on her back, be wrapped around the head or upper body to shade from the sun or provide warmth. Growing up in Milta, Alejandro was always fascinated and inspired by the archaeological ruins that his village embraces. In this weaving he casts lights on the culture of his ancient ancestors reflected in the columns and geometric motifs  within the archaeological zone. His family is renowned within the textile industry for their elaboration of beautiful rebozos woven with cotton thread with the pedal loom.
