Handwoven pillow cover - Diamonds in Light Turquoise

This beautiful pillow cover features the Grand Design from the ceremonial huipil of Sakamch'en. Diamonds represent the Universe and the path of the sun in it's daily movement: the east and west are represented by the small diamonds at the top and bottom. The large diamond in the center is the sun at noon. It was hand woven using a backstrap loom, a system created during the Classic Maya period.

Every Piece of Mexican Glassware is Unique

Mexican handblown glassware is not for every customer. Sometimes we hear from customers that are dismayed that their Mexican stemware doesn't match, that the drinking glasses are differing heights, or that the colors have slight variations.
Tiny imperfections, such as variable thickness and shape, bubbles and flowing colors are reminders that Mexican blown glass is made by humans.
What some people see as a flaw, others see as a beautiful, handmade organic detail.
