Cushion from San Antonino Aguas Calientes
130,00€ incl. VAT
These cushion is made from old, handwoven towels the small twon San Antonino Aguas Calientes near Antigua, Guatemala.
They are made on a back-strap loom, maybe 30-40 years ago. This truly age-old craft has been used in Guatemala for over two thousand years, pre-dating the arrival of the Spanish conquistadores, and remained relatively unchanged since ancient times until today. It is an easy, portable way to weave, using sticks and wearing a belt around the waist of the weaver. Even if it looks simple, you need a lot of knowledge and talent. And a lot of body control. The weaver controls the tension by the direction in which she moves her body.
