Turquoise Vintage Pillow No. 08


1 in stock

This vibrant ikat stopped us in our tracks while wandering the daily markets in Panajachel.  Turquoise hues, rarely found in Guatemala, are mixed with deep indigo in this traditional Mayan “corte” (skirts), commonly wrapped around a woman’s waist and secured with an embroidered belt.  Handwoven on backstrap loom only as wide as the weaver’s hips, this piece connects two fabric panels with a mint and turquoise “ronda” stitch.

Pillow is backed with solid ivory fabric.  Due to its vintage nature, pillows vary slightly and may show some minor use.

  • 19” x 10”
  • 100% Guatemalan cotton in indigo, turquoise, and mint
