Cotton rebozo shawl, 'Uriangato Blues' (Mexico)

Benjamin Garcia perpetuates Mexico's time-honored traditions with this beautiful handwoven rebozo shawl. Intricate and orderly geometric motifs are achieved by tie-dying white cotton threads in dark blue and brown before they are placed on the loom. The long, lavish macramé fringe was a characteristic of bridal rebozos.
