Handwoven pillow cover - Diamonds in Mexican Pink

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.

Mexican glassware, ... it all starts with intense heat.

Glass melts at between 2600 to 2900 degrees (F.) or 1425 to 1600 degrees (C.) depending upon the composition of the glass. Glass was discovered by potters about 3000 B.C.E., and the technique of glass blowing was invented about 100 B.C.E. Glass blowing was introduced to Mexico in 1535, shortly after the Conquest, and has been a staple of Mexican craftsmanship ever since.
