This unusual rebozo (shawl) was donated by Tia Stephanie Tours who lead cultural immersion journeys in Mexico and Columbia. This lovely rebozo is part of one those journeys to Tenancingo, Estado de Mexico, Mexico where they visit the weavers of these special shawls to learn how they are made. It was woven on a floor loom in this beautiful jaspe (ikat) pattern interspersed with stripes of magenta with a navy blue and magenta knotting, also known as “punta”, added on at each end. The overall effect of this piece is a purplish tone.
The handwoven cotton fabric part measures 72″ long by 29″ wide and the punta ends are 6.5″ of knotting with 3.5 additional inches of fringe. Overall length is 92″ long and is perfect for those chilly summer evenings.
About Award Winning Tia Stephanie Tours:
Our Travel Philosophy
At Tia Stephanie Tours we strive to make thoughtful and purposeful choices about our travels. As such, we believe we are good stewards for the money you spend with us by signing up for our tours. A significant portion of your travel expenditure goes directly into the cities, towns and communities that we visit. We believe tourism can be a viable economic impulse for communities and people. In the case of Mexico, it represents the 3rd largest source of revenue; however most of this goes to beach resort destinations. On our travels, we carefully select our local partners; from the hotels we stay in, the restaurants we eat at, the expert guides we select, and the many wonderful artisans we visit during our excursions. Please know that if you sign up for a Tia Stephanie Tour, your travel dollars are thoughtfully allocated within the destinations we travel to. Thank you for your participation!
