These pillows are the definition of handmade. The fabric is delicately weaved fiber by fiber in a loom machine that is only moved by artisan hands, building pieces from down up, to finalize with intricate and colorful designs. The uniqueness of these wool-pillows comes from the fact that they represent a piece of culture and history that is stamped on fabric forever. These pillows are an excellent option to accessorize and create a focal point on settings like southwestern, bohemian, mid-century, shabby chic and other modern settings as minimalistic and contemporary.

A little bit more about this pillow:

The waist loom is a very old technique used by Mesoamerican cultures. At present, artisans continue to use this technique to make some of the pieces they use for their clothing as well as items and accessories for the home. This technique used in some communities of Oaxaca and Chiapas, consists of intertwining threads of any type of fiber in a wooden loom, tying them to a pole or tree on one side and to the waist of the craftsman on the other; and interconnecting perpendicularly other threads with chopsticks to give the finish to the weft of the fabric.
The elaboration of a wool cushion like this is a slow process that can take up to 4 days to finish!
Unfortunately, these ancestral techniques have been replicated with machines, removing the human element, in such a way that their production is greater in a shorter time. Naturally, this has repercussions for the original producers, creators of these crafts, because it is impossible to compete with the prices generated by cheap production.
