Guatemalan Alfombra Kilim Pillow, Northern Lights


Double sided woven wool known as alfombra (rug) made in the heart of Guatemala by women artisans.    The art of fly looming is a textile tradition that dates to pre-Hispanic times & was diversified, enriched & ultimately revolutionized by pedal & shuttle looms (brought to the Mayan region by the Spaniards).  Made from wool, cotton & organic natural dyes... each one of a kind pillowcase takes several weeks to make from beginning to end & will last a lifetime.  

Approximately 18" x 18"
