Excited to share pieces of this limited edition collection. Hand embroidered here in Mexico by traditional heritage groups in the villages of Puebla and Oaxaca. A time honored tradition with a spin of classic fabrics. Plaids, ginghams and polka dots. Each piece is one of a kind, with the exception of some having a matching partner. If you see a piece, please make sure to run away with it, as it took close to a year to see these pieces come to fruition.
The sham features the superbly crafted needlework of the San Antonino artisans, San Antonino Castillo Velasco is a town located in southern Oaxaca. The town is known for its crafts, especially fine embroidery and items made with a flower known as flor inmortal("immortal flower"), so called because it does not lose its color when it is dried. Hundreds of years of tradition!
This sham is dry clean only. This sham has a small hidden zippers, beautifully lined and in need of stuffing. We use a poly fill cotton. Old stuffing is also an eco friendly solution that works well because our pieces are lined. Our pieces are fairly traded and we are excited about the new pieces that are on the drawing board for us.
