GUATEMALAN COTTON & WOOL CUSHION

"Guatemalan artisans in various departments of the country use weaving techniques that have been handed down from generation to generation. It is in pursuit of the conservation of this knowledge while benefiting those living in these communities that Ingrid and Andrea have joined together with these artisans to design and make hand woven goods. Female artisans in Nebaj in the department of Quiché practice the art of backstrap loom weaving and create the front part of this cushion cover using a cotton and wool blend in a design of ivory and midnight blue stripes. Cotton blend cloth in milk white is used for the back side; the cover comes with a zipper on one side to allow a cushion to be inserted."
