Textiles, Pillows and Poufs
$17.25 $69.00

The colorful corte textile is the skirt worn by indigenous Mayan women in Guatemala. We source these textiles from markets in the Highlands and look for vintage, well-loved, well-worn pieces. Once we fall in love with the textiles and the stories, we carefully wash and dry the textiles and then set out to create one-of-a-kind pillows. This circus stripe lumbar pillow is just the right balance of color and whimsey! Mix and match them for an eclectic look or to dress a stately bed. We hope these pillows will remind you of the beautiful Guatemalan women that once wore the corte as you enjoy them in your home.

Pillow insert not included. Coordinating pillow inserts are available in our online store.
