"Ex-Voto" cushion and embroidered pink Cambaya
Mexico invites itself into our new "One way-ticket to Mexico" collection.
This cushion is an invitation to travel with its typical patterns of Mexican culture, the "Ex-Votos". These brass and often colorful wall decorations adorn the walls of Mexican homes. The latter are offerings to the Gods and Goddesses, carrying a message of gratitude and offering. We wanted to pay homage to them on colorful and joyful textiles.
The "Ex-Voto" patterns are printed on 100% natural linen. The back is made of embroidered Mexican fabric, called "Cambaya". It was imported from Yucatan in small quantities. It is embroidered with typical geometric patterns (100% cotton).
The old embroidery as piping is sourced from old embroidery professionals.
