These blue lumbar pillow covers are woven on a foot loom after the cloth is dyed using the traditional Guatemalan Ikat technique, yielding a stunning blue ikat fabric. We call this textile collection "Serpentina."
The asymmetry of the design on one side, combined with the more traditional deep indigo blue background with creamy white ikat details of natural cotton on the other, means that this beautiful blue pillow can be a versatile accent piece in any room.
Weaving technique: Jaspe (also known as Ikat)

Care & Maintenance
Handwoven textiles require special care to retain their color and to avoid shrinkage. For the first wash, hand wash in cold water with a little bit of salt or vinegar to set the colors. For any other washes, turn inside out. Hand wash separately in cold water or on a gentle cycle. Do not leave to soak. Line dry immediately. It is recommended to dry the textiles out of the sun to avoid fading. NEVER dry your textiles in the dryer.
