My Story

Made from a woman’s vintage “huipil” (blouse) in Guatemala.

Originally handwoven on a backstrap loom in two panels and connected with a decorative “ronda” stitch so that the colors on both side mirror each other.

Found in an open-air market in Chichicastenango, Guatemala

Your purchase provides above fair wages for the artisans in Central America, education scholarships for their children and health care in their communities.

Made with love in Guatemala

Design on front only. Due to the handcrafted nature, each pillow varies slightly. Dry clean or spot clean only
