Rustic splendor shines in organic wool, along with the personal touches of skilled artisan hands. This pillow speaks to the traditional process, as it is individually woven on backstrap loom using yarn that is sorted, carded and spun by hand. Every piece supports original flourishes, including handmade wool tassels, a deep cushion insert back opening, and the choice of a grey or natural ivory textile base that exists as an exclusive art piece on its own.
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 9 - 12 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 cover is available in two sizes:
55cm x 55cm (22" x 22”)
50cm x 50cm (20" x 20”)
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.
