Colotenango is a community in the northwest corner of Guatemala known for its unusual geometric textile designs. These textiles are hand woven on backstrap looms and often feature warp striped base panels joined together. The panels are later covered with supplementary brocade designs woven in the soumak style. The geometric designs symbolize the ancient Mayan concepts of the cosmos, the four cardinal points, space and energy.
Constructed from repurposed vintage textiles, this pillow is backed with antique handspun European linen and finished with an invisible zipper. Comes with our eco-friendly fiber insert in an unbleached cotton case.
