more The accent pillow with endless interest. This design of intricate geometric shapes traditionally adorns huipiles (“wee-peels”) worn as blouses by women in the Western Highlands of Guatemala. Meticulously brocaded by hand, each pillow takes 15 days to weave using age-old techniques on a Mayan backstrap loom. Design on front only, with solid white backing. Due to the handcrafted nature, each pillow varies slightly.
