This pillow was created from a vintage, handwoven Guatemalan tzute or carrying cloth.The colors are striking ~ deep turquoise blue and olive green stripes delineated with narrow black bands.
In all of our travels in the highlands of Guatemala we had never seen this particular combination of colors in one piece. The weaver had a fabulous design sense. These textiles are traditionally woven in a square shape and used to carry all manner of goods, including babies and produce.The top third of the pillow is new cotton fabric in an earthy shade of olive-taupe, accented by three large polyamide decorative buttons.
