Mexico, El Camino de Los Altos A.C., Nopal Brown Cushion
Product name: NOPAL BROWN cushion
Type of product: Cushion
Description (story of the item): Woven on a prehispanic waist loom by the Mayan weavers of the community of OXCHUC (the Highlands of Chiapas)
It is a smooth tissue with a predominant density of the threads in the warp hiding the weft that gives very dense and luminous colours into the products. It’s a traditional technique of this region. The central motif is hand embroidered once the fabric is ready. Finally, the cushion is hand-sewn.
The creation of this product was made possible thanks to the joint efforts between El Camino designers together with the Oxchuc artisans from El Camino de Los Altos, through workshops in the community with all the Oxchuc weavers who are members of ECLA. Each Oxchuc woman weaves at home.
Materials: 100% mercerized cotton
