About

Explore the wonderful world of the rebozo, a classic Mexican shawl that was made famous in the last century by artist Frida Kahlo, in Made in Mexico at the Fashion and Textile Museum.

The rebozo is famous worldwide for having been worn by the likes of revolutionaries, artists, writers and collectors. Through these people it has become a symbol of Mexican culture and identity.

In the first ever show devoted to the much-loved garment, the museum examines the key role that such textiles have played in promoting Mexican culture from the 17th century to the present day.

Highlights of the exhibition include major loans from private collections that have never before been seen in public, as well as items from the Franz Mayer Museum in Mexico City, Oaxaca's Museum of Textiles and the British Museum.
