These cushions are made from a vintage Guatemalan huipil from the Nahuala region. The ground yarn is an indigo dyed cotton which is nicely faded and the decorative areas are a supplementary floating weft in 2 tones of orange with accents of off white, green and pink. I'm not sure what the yarn is, it may be synthetic but it's silk like and very pretty.
I've backed the cushions with a vintage hand-loomed cotton in dark blue with a pinstripe. There are zip fasteners and feather pads.
