The Nahuala Pillows from Maya Traditions are made by women from the Santa Catarina-Nahuala Weaving Group in Guatemala. This group of weavers creates intricate weft brocade designs inspired by nature, often passed down from ancestors. Consistent work provides a source of needed income in this rural village. Maya Traditions has been working with this and other woman’s weaving cooperatives and family businesses since 1988. The Nahuala Pillow is 100% cotton and comes pre-stuffed. The detailing and beautiful earth-tone colors combined with its comfort make the Nahuala Pillow a decorative and practical addition to any home!
