Luz is a special and unique piece of art where hundreds of threads are woven together on a pedal loom by women. The same women that weave the rebozos do also take care of the special process of cultivating the silk worms. This includes planting mulberry (morera) trees and collecting the leaves for the feeding of the worms. This takes around 30-33 days and happens on the area of Sector Cajonos at Sierra Norte of Oaxaca.


When the silk cocoons are ready women hand spun them into silk threads. After that the process of weaving starts by preparing the yarn to the loom. When the weaving has been completed the fringes are finished with the incredible macrame knotting.

Then the unique rebozo is ready.
