Please join the wait list for this product.
Wool for these highly textured, handmade pillows comes from sheep in the Guatemalan highlands of Momostenango, Totónicapan. Due to high altitude and extreme cold weather, sheep in this region grow exceptionally high quality, resilient wool. Artisans in rural communities shear the sheep, then clean and wash the wool before spinning it into rustic, nubby yarns. Then they hand weave the yarn into small batches of textiles for beautiful, natural pillows. All pillows are backed with 100% linen.
Founded in 2014 by Ingrid Gamboa and Andrea Benevente, Natural Art is a Guatemalan-based company committed to empowering and supporting artisans in rural communities. Dedicated to preserving 100-year old Mayan craft techniques, stabilizing local economies, and highlighting handmade designs, the company works with 9 different partner groups in rural Guatemala to design and craft unique products for the global market. By providing these artisans with a means to make a living, Natural Art is preserving the culture and also helping stem migration from Guatemala.
