The accent pillow with endless interest. This design of intricate geometric shapes traditionally adorns huipiles (“wee-peels”) worn as blouses by women in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Meticulously brocaded by hand, each pillow takes 15 days to weave using age-old techniques on a Mayan backstrap loom. Design on front only, with solid white backing. Due to the handcrafted nature, each pillow varies slightly.

In addition to paying above fair wages for their work, we donate 10% of the proceeds from this purchase to education and health care for the artisans and the families of Pixan Cooperative.
