Texture. Pattern. Loads of color. This gorgeous pouf is the just the dose of nomadic spirit every boho cool interior craves. Custom designed and every inch an artisanal legacy, each pouf is handwoven using vintage huipiles (traditional Guatemalan blouses) and cortes (traditional Guatemalan skirts).

Handwoven using traditional backstrap weaving technique, each huipil and cortes takes 4-6 weeks to weave and 2-3 days to reconstruct as a pouf. 

This pouf comes with a pre-filled cruelty-free down alternative insert.

Crafted from a textile originally handwoven for and worn by an indigenous woman, this pouf is in vintage condition. Some minor imperfections are possible and are a nod to its cultural significance and history.

A seamless combination of legacy textiles, this pouf is handcrafted from a vintage huipil and corte (traditional blouse and skirt worn by many Guatemalan women to this day). The huipil is originally woven by the weavers of Chichicastenango and the corte by the weavers of Zunil.  

Woven on a backstop loom, each huipil is a nod to the village it comes from and social status of the weaver and is rooted in symbolism. From diamonds and triangles that represent the sun and the mountains in Chichicastenango. To birds as messengers between heaven and earth and chevron patterns as god Gucumatz (god of wind and rain, one of the creator gods in Mayan mythology).

Brought to life using a combination of tie-and-dye method (jaspe, or ikat as its known elsewhere) and woven on a foot loom, Zunil cortes, on the other hand, combine ikat technique with what appears as embroidery and are said to be the most tedious and difficult to weave out of all the cortes in Guatemala.

RUGS

Vacuum regularly. Rotate every few months to even out wear, especially if the rug is located in a high traffic area. In case of a liquid spill, blot the spot using a white cloth to draw up the liquid; never rub a wet stain to prevent colors from bleeding. If further spot cleaning is required, entrust your rug to a professional dry cleaning service.
