Avo Onton Hand Woven Confetti Metallic Pillow
A pillow collection where patterns and colours are hand woven into elaborate works of art: a rich symbolic language that speaks of ancestry, tradition and pride. This 24" x 24" back strap loom woven pillow is made in Ecru and Pearl cotton with metallic details in Sand, Silver, Lavender, Dusk, Pebble and Olive.
Avo onton literally translates as: how is your heart today? (In Tseltal, a language spoken in the highlands of Chiapas, Mexico); and it is the common form of greeting in this indigenous community.
Artemateria takes pride in being a socially conscious business. They work with extremely talented yet impoverished communities in an effort to safeguard rare artisanal skills passed down through generations. Their goal is to help provide a continuous and fair source of income, prevent displacement and enable artisan communities to preserve their traditions and way of life while gradually improving their living conditions.
