One-of-a-kind statement for your sofa or bed! Intertwined's gorgeous handmade throw pillow is sustainably made from pieces of a second-hand corte, a traditional handwoven skirt worn by Mayan women in Guatemala. The vintage fabric is sewn together in a patchwork pattern and overdyed blue by the talented artisans at Ruth and Naomi. The hemp fabric that completes the pillow is made in India by The Hemp Foundation, a non-profit that promotes alleviation of poverty through the cultivation of hemp in remote villages.

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.
