The Matlatzinca (pjiekak’joo) were the indigenous people, living since pre-Hispanic times in the valley of Toluca, state of Mexico.
In these central highlands of Mexico, master artisans weave the cotton “rebozo”, a symbol of Mexican identity. The “rebozo” is traditionally worn by women as a shawl, to cover their heads and to carry their babies.
Our master artisan prepares the cotton threads and dyes them using the ancient ikat technique, creating different patterns and unique designs. The weaving is done on ancient wooden pedal looms that have been in the artisans family for generations.
