The woven textile is finished with our flax linen backing and closed by an invisible zipper with a gold pull. Our signature St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of the pillow. The cushion is stuffed with an oversized down insert. The pillow dimensions are 22" W x 13.5" H.

Please note that as unique, handmade art, no two pillows are ever exactly the same and color varies across monitors. Our website photos are a close representation of this pillow, but may not be identical to the one you receive.

The Huipil, or blouse, is a traditional female costume worn across the Mesoamerican region. This loose fitting tunic has been worn since before the arrival of the Spanish to the Americas, and remains the most common garment worn by indigenous Mesoamerican females today, particularly the Mayas in Guatemala. Huipil are created on a backstrap loom and heavily decorated with woven designs. Many weavers also incorporate intricate embroidery patterns within their weaving. This vintage piece is a fragment of ceremonial huipil. There are only four St. Frank pillows created from this unique textile.
