Become inspired in the beautiful and peaceful little town of Santa María del Rio, “The Cradle of Shawl,” in the state of San Luis Potosi. The name “rebozo,” or shawl, comes from the Spanish, although the use of the rebozo was always close to indigenous women. Spanish high- society women used the rebozo as a fashion accessory indoors, while the indigenous women used it as an outdoor cloth with many uses. For them, the rebozo means warm coat, purse, handkerchief, canvas to baptize, clothesline, cradle, and shroud. The word for a shawl in náhuatl is “cenzotl” means “cloth of a thousand colors.” Mexico is the main producer and exporter of these fine shawls in the world.
