Your New Treasure'Ethical By Design

Unique accent pillow covers handmade on a waist loom. This pillow, with triangles, is an excellent option to decorate and create a focal point on settings like southwestern, bohemian, mid-century, shabby chic and other modern settings as minimalistic and contemporary. This is a piece that speaks of its uniqueness because of the cultural heritage carried within it. This pillow is from Teotitlan Del Valle community of Oaxaca Mexico.

MEASUREMENTS: 16″ long x 16″ tall.
CARE GUIDE: Spot clean with damp cloth or dry clean

A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THIS WOOL PILLOW
The waist loom is a very old technique used by Mesoamerican cultures. At present, artisans continue to use this technique to make some of the pieces they use for their clothing as well as items and accessories for the home. This technique used in some communities of Oaxaca and Chiapas, consists of intertwining threads of any type of fiber in a wooden loom, tying them to a pole or tree on one side and to the waist of the craftsman on the other; and interconnecting perpendicularly other threads with chopsticks to give the finish to the weft of the fabric. The elaboration of a wool cushion like this is a slow process that can take up to 3 days to finish!

Unfortunately, these ancestral techniques have been replicated with machines, removing the human element, in such a way that their production is greater in a
shorter time. Naturally, this has repercussions for the original producers, creators of these crafts, because it is impossible to compete with the prices generated by cheap production.

Explore Palm Weaving With Kante Decor


Video

HANDMADE By Mexican Artisans

  • Crafting a petate (palm mat) starts by cutting the palms leaves and drying them in the sun. The best ones are selected for weaving.

  • The entire process of weaving a small palm purse takes between 2 and 3 days. It’s done 100% by hand. Today, the embroidery used on palm crafts are inspired on Puebla’s typical dress known as China Poblana which is embroidered with beads and sequin.

HANDMADE By Mexican Artisans

  • Mesoamerica was home to highly advanced ancient cultures. Among their many artistic expressions, embroidery always stood up as their most iconic one. They use what we know today as a waist loom and agave fibers + cotton as their main raw materials.

  • This technique is frequently used in Oaxaca and Chiapas in Southwestern Mexico and consists in weaving thread using a wooden loom which is tied to a tree on one end and to the artisan’s waist on the other.

HAND Embroidered By Mexican Artisans

  • Kante's artisans use different techniques such as cross stitch or “hilvan” style embroidery to capture their culture’s worldview. Worldview is an element that ceases to be abstract once it gets captured on a figure or pattern.

  • Today, Mazahua women, part of one of the largest ethnic groups in central Mexico, keep their ancestors memories alive by describing the surroundings and their feelings through the images in the embroideries.
