Available in a base of unbleached cotton with accents of handspun coyuchi in delicate natural tones of moss or camel, these cushions simultaneously highlight the beauty of nature and traditional processes in one luxurious package. They are backed with handwoven cotton and feature an envelope opening. Ideal as an accent for a sitting space, or paired together on a bed, these textiles are expertly woven on a traditional backstrap loom for an heirloom-quality finish that will grace the rooms of generations to come.
Our artisan partner is a master weaver who has been working with cotton and traditional backstrap loom since she was a young girl. The women in her family passed down this incredible knowledge, and with this, she creates a range of works from traditional huipils to table runners, along with these custom collaborative works that are made exclusively for our stock in Southern Mexico.
The backing for these pieces is made by a family of weavers in Southern Mexico on standing foot pedal loom using 100% natural unbleached cotton. This custom backing adds an intriguing texture for a harmonious handmade pairing – a testament to the creative prowess of this group who have been producing textile works since 1920.
Approximately 30cm x 50cm (12” x 20”)
Professionally dry clean only. Warm iron with protective layer over textile to maintain a crisp finish.
This price is for a single cushion cover in either moss or camel. The cushion insert is not included with this cover. Given the nature of handmade, sizes, designs and hues may vary slightly from the featured product image. The cotton base is unbleached, so there may be perceived 'imperfections', however this is part of the make up of the material – we're happy to send close up shots of the cushions to illustrate prior to purchase.
