  • Why you’ll love this product

    Classy and comfy, this pillow cover will bring you joy and comfort for years. Handwoven from all-natural materials, you’ll love the intricate patterns and soft touch of the fabric. It makes the perfect cuddle buddy during a Netflix binge session, and adds just the right pop of colour to your burgeoning ethical home.

    Woven on a foot loom by a co-op of artisans in Ixtahuacan, Guatemala, the Invierno Pillow Cover is made using a labour intensive, natural dye process called Ikat. “Ikat” means knots, and is a traditional weaving technique that has been practiced for thousands of years.

    • Ethically made in Guatemala from 100% cotton, coloured using plant-based and natural dyes
    • Fabric is sourced from a weaving co-operative that supports women living in the highlands; upcycled by a small, local family of sewers in La Antigua
    • Measures 11” by 16.5” (for a firmer, plumper pillow, we recommend choosing an insert that is slightly larger)
    • Care instructions: Wash separately in cold water for first couple of washes. Hand/machine wash in cold water with like colours afterwards. Line/hang dry, will shrink if put in dryer under high heat. Do not pull loose thread, simply cut off
