This versatile ivory wool pillow enhances any interior with classic lines and natural materials. Every piece features a sublime artisan woven textile – handmade by our artisan partner on a traditional backstrap loom in Chiapas, Mexico. The backing is comprised of unbleached cotton canvas, and features an envelope insert opening that is assembled and sewn on machine to our specifications in Oaxaca, Mexico.
These works are made by two talented groups of artisan women in the highlands of Southern Mexico. Both groups operate as family collectives, and collaborate with us directly on our ongoing selection of backstrap wool textiles in a variety of designs and sizes. Each of these cushions takes three full days to complete – from the spinning of the wool to the final sewing of each piece per our specifications.
We work with a seamstress in Oaxaca, Mexico on all of our cushions, so in total, these works help to provide a positive stream of income for 13 women in two Mexican states.
These cushion covers are available in three sizes:
55cm x 55cm (22 x 22”)
50cm x 50cm (20 x 20”)
45cm x 45cm (18 x 18”)
For best care results, this piece should be dry cleaned by a professional with expertise in wool textiles. High quality wool products do not require frequent cleanings, and small marks can generally be gently wiped off with a dry cloth.
Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and colors may vary slightly from the featured product image. These covers are made to order, and the cushion insert is not included.
