"The traditional huipil (dress, blouse) of Tactic, in Alta Verapaz, is beautiful. Motifs tend to always be the same, they represent the women's natural surroundings," says Miriam and Debora of their inspiration for this cushion cover. Featuring people, birds, deer and geometric patterns, the purple and black cotton cover is woven on a backstrap loom. The solid purple back features a slit for the cushion.
