Delicate vertical lines grace this subtle beauty in a blend of natural undyed ivory and grey handspun wool. This yarn is made using a traditional drop spindle, which is first carded by hand and then later woven on a backstrap loom. The Erin supports an envelope insert opening on a backing of unbleached cotton canvas – all of which are sewn to our specifications in Oaxaca, Mexico. Gorgeous in neutrals, this pretty piece is ideal for living rooms and bedrooms alike.
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 4 - 6 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.

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. The noted price is for one pillow cover, and the cushion insert is not included. We recommend a feather insert one size up. We have a very limited quantity of these pieces coming soon. Contact us directly if you'd like to be added to the waitlist.
