The vibrant colors and patterns of these cushions evoke the spirit of Central America, giving any room a spark of culture. Our throw pillow covers are handmade by the skillful hands of Guatemalan artisans, who pass down the knowledge of their ancestors with their intricate weaving and pattern designs. Each piece is made of 100% cotton and makes for a sublime fusion of Guatemalan ancestral weaving and modern innovation. Each ethnic throw pillow cover has been handwoven on a traditional foot loom. The Serpentina collection is made using cotton fabric that has been dyed using the delicate ikat technique (also known as jaspe), and the Nahuala collection is handwoven and hand-embroidered using designs that are emblematic of Guatemala. These decorative throw pillow covers make a great addition to any home, but can also be a truly unique gift to your friends and loved ones. Why not consider an order as an original wedding gift or to mark a special anniversary? Designs can be grouped in colors, so you can make use of a dominant green or dominant blue cushion set to match the occasion or the recipient. Since our decorative throw pillow covers are all handwoven, they do require a bit of special care to attain their original color and avoid shrinkage. A guide and instructions on how to take care of your covers through proper washing and drying are available under each separate item in our online shop. By taking proper care of the pillow covers, they will last you for years to come while bringing many compliments from guests and visitors. As with any other handcrafted item from Casa de Los Gigantes, our decorative throw pillow covers are entirely sourced from natural materials. All of our products are designed with a greater purpose in mind - to make nature and tradition an embedded part of our customers’ homes and lives. By making a purchase you are also supporting our network of artisans based in Guatemala.
