Rebozo Birth Wrap in Traditional Keffiyeh Fabric

Regular price $ 34.95 USD

A rebozo is a long piece of cotton fabric that is used by doulas and partners for labor support. They are also great during postpartum as a nursing cover or baby wrap! 

The rebozo originated in Mexican and is the name of the long traditional scarf women use for a variety of purposes, including baby wearing. It's increasingly popular as a non invasive tool for supporting natural labor by reducing discomfort and even helping babies reposition themselves.
In 2018, one of Handmade Palestine's customers custom ordered a rebozo using traditional keffiyeh fabric. A few weeks later, he sent photos of his wife's labor, featuring the rebozo we made. It was amazing, and touching. We're actually using his photos here (so thank you Kevin and Lena!).
 
These are made from a woven cotton fabric sourced from the only keffiyeh factory in Palestine, Hirbawi in Hebron. We use a local tailor to hem the edges. Each piece measures approximately 2.5m x 75 cm. We are happy to customize the length if you want it a bit longer--just give us enough time! 
If you are keen to use the rebozo as a wrap during labor, check out instructions from Spinning Babies.
Dimensions: 250x75cm | 98x29.5"
