One-of-a-kind statement for your sofa or bed! Intertwined's gorgeous handmade throw pillow is sustainably made from a second-hand huipil, a traditional handwoven blouse worn by Mayan women in Guatemala. The vintage fabric that completes the pillow was once a traditional Mayan corte (skirt). The tailors and seamstresses at Ruth and Naomi combine the items to create the perfect pillow cover for your living room or bedroom.

Handmade Vintage

This product is made with handmade, upcycled fabric. We believe the minor imperfections associated with vintage 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 worn nature of the handwoven fabric, but colors vary across monitors, and photos can’t highlight all aspects of a product.
