Ideal for layering on a bed, sofa or in a little reading nook, this cushion supports an intricate textured front in natural handspun black and grey wool. Every one of these pieces is carefully woven on traditional backstrap loom and is backed with unbleached canvas, for a contemporary pairing of fabrics. Both durable and modern, these pillows require minimal cleaning and will look like new for years to come.
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 2 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.
