This stunning piece is handmade with Otomi embroidery design. Made of natural and sustainable 100% cotton, each 20"x 20" pillow has elaborate hand embroidery that merges modern inspiration with tradition through whimsical motifs of plants, animals, festivities and natural forces. This detailed embroidery technique is called Tenango after a village of Otomi artisans in Hidalgo, Mexico where this art has been passed down for numerous generations.
