Vintage Faja No.02

Vintage Faja No.02


Have a little fun with this small accent pillow.  This indigo faja belt is part of traditional Mayan clothing, wrapping around a woman’s waist again and again.  Handwoven on a backstrap loom using a meticulous, intricate weaving technique called “brocading” that has been passed down for generations.  This faja was found while sifting through vintage piles in Central America’s largest textile market in Chichicastenango, Guatemala. The geometric design continues to the back and is secured on an oatmeal linen/cotton blended pillow cover.  

This pillow helps sustain this craft and support ethical employment.
