Wool Scribble Pillow Cover, 15 x 24
Please join the wait list for this variant.
This striking handcrafted pillow cover with an original woven scribble accent is made using wool from Chilota sheep that are born and raised on Chiloe Island off the west coast of Chile. As a result of harsh weather on the remote island wool from these sheep is durable, extra warm, and highly desirable.
The wool is first cleaned in hot water to remove the natural oils, then dried and spun into fine thread. Yarn is dyed using natural materials like leaves, barks, roots, branches, clay, moss, and minerals before being hand-woven on ancient looms by Chiloe craftswomen. These artisans use techniques and processes that have been handed down from generation to generation with families specializing in distinct ways to weave and spin the wool.
Founded in 2016 by Chilean native Catalina Marin, Treko (meaning ‘yarn of wool’ in the native Chilean dialect) is dedicated to preserving the textile traditions of the artisans of Chiloe island - part of an archipelago off the west coast of Chile - and to sharing the creations of these master artisans with the world. The company fuses contemporary design with traditional weaving and knitting techniques dating from the 16th century that have been passed down within the Hilluche community.
Material: Chilota wool, natural plant and mineral dyes
Dimensions: 15" x 24"
