Oaxaca pillows 4

A small collection I've made of European shams (square) in various sizes using hand embroidered vintage textiles from Oaxaca, Mexico.


All have velvet backs with zipper closures, velvet piping details, and machine embroidered framing. The inserts are new high quality poly/ cotton blends with polyester fiberfill. The vintage Mexican textiles are cotton embroidery on rayon and cotton velvet in the style Frida Kahlo made famous, the Tehuantepec bordado a mano.
