Cambaya Fabric/ Rebozo/Scarves

Can't Post | Private Reply
Hello!

I'm looking to build a relationship with a producer of cambaya rebozos like this: https://encrypted-tbn2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRQEqsJ1UcEIrQ4k61fNaQVO5WX9Whl3fPaZcW095k_AEcPn92j

I'd like to have them shipped and resell them in NYC. In my Mexican travels, while I saw them used all over and sold in street markets, I have not been able to track down the origins or a factory where I can order them direct at wholesale costs.

I know Parisina sells cambaya fabric, but am hoping to find finished scarves.

Anyway help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated!

You might want to look at the rebozos from Santa Maria del Rio,San Luis Potosi,they're the best you'll find.
I don't have a link but you can probably find a supplier with a little googling.

You could probably get them made for you. I have the impression there are plenty of small garment factories in Mexico City that will take on small-lot jobs. It might take a bit of a search to find the right person to track them down for you and make inquiries, but, for example, this.

There are many lovely and artistic rebozos in Mexico, but I'm looking for the acrylic cambaya rebozos specifically at this time.

It might even require a person “on the ground” looking for notices taped to utility poles in the garment district, advertising for sewing machine operators, and following up to find the company offering these jobs – that’s the kind of operation that I could imagine filling your orders.

I am an artisan who does rebozos and many other products, I do use Mexican cambaya for the rebozos. Please look me up on Etsy, https://www.etsy.com/pages/artisans, the store is called Innate Artisan Shop.
