DescriptionThis fine rebozo is designed with coloured warp threads, which were tie-dyed before weaving. They form diamonds and S-shapes flanked by narrow stripes highlighted with silver and gold filé threads, framing elegant embroidered floral scrolls. The garment is finished with decoratively-knotted fringes arranged in V-shaped sections at both ends.
