Vintage Corte Accent Pillow - Luna

65.00

We scoured the markets of the Guatemalan highlands in search of beautiful hand-woven fabrics for our ChiChi Collection accent pillow covers. Each pillow cover is one-of-a-kind and has been constructed using a piece of a vintage, hand-woven Maya corte. No 2 pillow covers are exactly alike and the number of covers available in each design depends on the size of the corte.

ONLY 7 AVAILABLE

What is a corte?
Anyone visiting the Guatemalan highlands can delight in seeing the beautiful traje indigena (traditional Maya clothing). Some basic elements of the traditional dress are the tocoyal (head covering), huipil (blouse), corte (skirt), and paz (belt). The styles, patterns and colours used by each village are unique and each garment is the creation of its weaver. The Maya women of the highlands proudly wear huipilies and cortes everyday and these colourful creations are still made by hand using centuries old weaving techniques.

OOAK
Each corte has been hand-crafted by Maya artisans using centuries old weaving techniques. Due to the delicate vintage nature of this item, subtle distressing is to be expected and small imperfections only add to it’s uniqueness and beauty 💕
