Originating from traditional designs on huipiles (“wee-peels”) worn as blouses by women in the Nahuala village, this Guatemalan pillow was customized with a minimalist color palette.  Each pillow takes 15 days to weave on a traditional Mayan backstrap loom.  Design on front only, with solid ivory backing and playful blush tassels on the corners. Due to the handcrafted nature, each pillow varies slightly.

This pillow helps provide education and health care for the artisans and the children of the Maya Traditions Group.
