This gorgeous, lightweight shawl or rebozo, was handwoven, then embroidered in Venustiano Carranza, Chiapas, Mexico. The embroidery is a the same color as the shawl on a very lightweight cotton fabric. It is 100% cotton. It is woven on a backstrap loom. It fall and wraps beautifully from the shoulder due to the drapey-ness of the fabric. Truly lovely on. The weavers from this city are known for using an additional weft so the weaving has a bit of 3-dimensional look to it. Just the right lightweight wrap for a summer evening. A beautiful dark and deep blue.
