Intertwined presents the handmade brocade cushion, fresh from Guatemala! The front of this distinctive pillow was intricately woven by Mayan ladies on a backstrap loom. Our Afghan refugee pals used their sewing skills to combine the handwoven fabric with a natural linen back, resulting in a unique and eye-catching accent pillow. Plus, the lovely terra cotta shade is ideal for adding a pop of color to any room. Never underestimate the power of making a statement and making a positive impact at the same time!

Handmade

This product is handmade with handwoven fabric. We believe the minor imperfections associated with fabric are part of the charm and uniqueness of the item. We do our best to take photos that accurately represent the true colors and nature of the handwoven fabric, but colors vary across monitors, and photos can’t highlight all aspects of a product.

More About the Artisan...

OUR AFGHAN FRIENDS arrived in Greensboro, North Carolina in 2021 from Afghanistan, fleeing the country as refugees when the Taliban resumed power. We cannot use their names because some family members remain in Afghanistan. In Greensboro, they have quickly adjusted to their new lives and have found various jobs to provide additional support to their family. They use their expert seamstress abilities to assemble Intertwined's mixed-textile handmade throw pillows, combining fabrics (vintage and new) from various countries with our signature hemp fabric. They also create our stunning handmade bags from upholstery fabric that would otherwise end up in the landfill.
