Description
Precise geometric motifs alternate with birds in an exquisite design. From talented members of Women United for Artisan Development, the cushion cover is woven by hand on a backstrap loom. Cording defines the borders, and the back is solid grey. 'We love birds,' the artisans confide. 'This design was woven by women who live in Quiché, a forested region in western Guatemala.'

Should one of the threads snag, they suggest you pull it back into place from the back of the fabric with a fine crochet hook.

    I really like these cases. The workmanship is excellent and the design is so typical of Mayan culture. They are not cheap, but well worth spending a little more for something beautiful and hand loomed.
