Huipil Pillows

These one of a kind pillows from ABC Carpet & Home are made from Guatemalan huipils, which are traditional blouses that have been hand loomed by Mayan women for centuries. Huipils are among the most highly decorated of mayan weavings and are used to identify the specific village of the wearer, her social and marital status, religious background and beliefs, wealth, authority and individual personality. The elaborate patterns and vibrant colors of these huipil pillows are incredible!
