Flower rebozos made out of black warp, wine weave with lila flower pattern.

Cotton is a warm and breathable material that keeps getting softer the more you use it. It has gorgeous handwoven flower embroidery that goes throughout the fabric until the tails where it is combined with stripes. 

These traditional 100% cotton rebozos are used by the midwives in Mexico and are artisan crafted on a loom and especially custom made for tall women as 2,70m long.

Can also be used as a long scarf/shawl or as a short baby wrap.

Rebozo is an extension of loving hands.

Rebozo is a shawl used in the Central American tradition for many purposes, and it’s a vital companion of the woman in the birth process. With a rebozo the woman’s body is moved rhythmically, like in a massage, during the pregnancy, in the birth and at the postpartum period.

Now recognized worldwide as a marvelous companion for Doulas, Midwifes and Families during pregnancy, birth and postpartum.

.......

It is used e.g. to balance and relax the pelvis, uterus and ligaments to allow more room for the baby to rotate into the optimal position for birth.

It is also used to ease pain, to work with the pressure waves in birth, to relax and connect with the body and the baby and to build birth space and privacy in hospital.

A rebozo can also be used in postpartum period in the sealing ceremony to “close” the body of the mother and to help the intestines and womb to return on their correct places, and to carry babies.
