This large, beautifully woven black with multi-colored square pillow was woven with a supplementary weft on a backstrap loom in Chiapas, Mexico in the traditional style with Mayan symbols. The diamonds are known as the cardinal points and symbolize the heavens, the underworld and the center earth which is "flat as a tortilla." The beautiful weaving was made into a pillowcase with an envelope closure in the back. The back is black cotton with a small red yarn tie. This beauty comes from one of the home of a woman I visited on the textile tour of Chiapas. This is a beautiful accent pillow in your home or as a gorgeous gift for someone you know...Pillow form is not included.
