Can you see what is on her shoulders? Yes! That is a Rebozo, a timeless and traditional piece in the wardrobe of every Mexican woman, its origin and use are uncertain, but it is known that the indigenous people of the region used it before the Spanish conquest.

In those times, the main use of this garment was for women to cover their faces and bodies to enter the churches. Nowadays times have changed and the Rebozo uses are varied, from wearing it as a blouse or dress, for decoration or even for carrying a baby!
