This hand-crafted pillow cushion is handwoven with ecological threads. Featuring intricate traditional Mayan geometric brocade work, woven into each fabric by hand, using the backstrap loom. This zig zag brocade motif is common in the weaving style from the region and has a direct relation with Mayan cosmovision- the zig zag pattern represents the Mayan Nahual (day sign) of Kan, the serpent energy that provides protection. The thread colors are hand-dyed from natural plant and minerals, local materials that are grown in the weaving communities, whilst our blue threads are from recycled denim jean fibers, repurposed factory waste from Guatemala City. Handwoven by cooperatives of Mayan women weavers in rural communities from Santa Catarina Ixtahuacan in the Western Highlands. Pillowcase measures 20 x20in and features inside lining and YKK zipper on bottom edge.
