Chiapas Woven Pillow Cover - Silver & Gray

$ 57.60 $ 72.00

HANDMADE IN MEXICO

Hand-woven on a backstrap loom, a traditional Mayan technique is practiced to intricately weave culture into this pillow cover. The silver thread in this pillow is slippery, making it beautiful but challenging to weave. The diamond pattern alludes to the shape of the Earth and the sky. The artisans often weave other designs that symbolize the fertile earth, their ancestors, and the saints and Gods.
