Hand dyed shawls
A rebozo is a traditional Mexican shawl. Oaxacan weavers dye cotton threads with ground cochineal on a traditional metate, grinding the dried insect by hand until it is a fine powder. Each thread is then woven on a traditional loom while the fringe is finished by hand.
Made in Mexico. Each is one-of-a-kind and may vary in size.
The Oaxaca collection is made up of contemporary craft from the southwestern region of Mexico. Earlier in 2016, SCP founder Sheridan Coakley took a trip to the region, where he found a vibrant community of makers whose work is a wonderful fusion of influences. This show presents an idiosyncratic collection of homeware, textiles and decorative objects.
