This intricate brocade pillow is handwoven on a backstrap loom by Tzozil women from Chiapas in Southwestern Mexico. In the Chiapatecan highlands, brocade is seen not only as an art form but as a sacrosanct ritual, passed down by gods and perfected by ancestors. This piece exemplifies the blending of a rich and ancient traditional craft with contemporary aesthetics and design.
