What You Did Not Know About The Rebozo
Come learn about the decolonial story of how the Rebozo came to be. Invest in your anti-racist education by diving deep into the issue of cultural appropriation & restitutions for Indigenous communties. Learn essential self-care with the Rebozo, in order to connect deeply & authentically to the textile.
