Vintage Faja No.05

Vintage Faja No.05


A pillow like no other.   This beautifully brocaded vintage faja, accented with rare metallic threads and delicate red tassels, was created as a traditional belt in Guatemala.  Brocading is a Mayan weaving technique on a backstrap, where design and texture are meticulously added in line by line. It is a true work of art. Found while sifting through piles of vintage textiles in Central America’s largest textile market, in Chichicastenango.  The 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.
