How Rebozos are made

Tenancingo is a small village, 95 km West of Mexico City, where rebozos have been made for years. Learning how to make rebozos takes years of practice, as the process changes according to the pattern, but generally these are the steps involved in making a rebozo. You can see why they’re so special!

And this is where Chilpa comes in.  We know that it’s a craft that has the risk of disappearing – the artisans are growing older, taking their knowledge to the grave, while the younger generation looks for a future elsewhere.

We appreciate the love, craft, tradition and years of practice that goes into making one. And that’s why we bring them to you. Always 100% handmade, always paying a fair price.
