El Camino de los Altos brocade pillow covers are handwoven by master weavers from the highlands of Chiapas in southern Mexico. Using traditional backstrap looms, these indigneous women weave intricate designs by adding colored, mercerized cotton yarn into the warp and weft. The traditional brocade designs are drawn from local history and mythology.
Striped and brocade pillow covers are available in red/black (rojo y negro), ochre/black (ochre y negro), quetzal blue/black (quetzal y negro) and red/dove grey (rojo y nube) which are shown front to back.
Striped and brocade pillow covers woven on back-strap loom with 100% mercerized cotton. Pillow insert is not included.
