    The Nahua women of Acatlan, Guerrero are famous for beautiful satin stitch embroidery. Rightly so, as this rebozo detail demonstrates.

      Hi Linda - Happy Memorial Day weekend. Yes, this one is mine, too. I bought it in Chilapa Guerrero at the big Sunday market. These are embroidered in Acatlan, a nahuatl speaking town not far from Chilapa. I wish the entire rebozo had fit into the photo
