The rebozo or Mexican shawl is a traditional garment worn by women indigenous to Mexico. It is a long flat garment that can be worn in many ways… around the head, upper body to shade from the sun, as a fashion accessory or simply for warmth on a cold day. It is considered a symbol of Mexican identity and was often worn by Frida Kahlo. There are many photos and paintings of Frida wearing a rebozo and its an integral element of her strong sense of style ♥
