Tamarind Living

Design: This fabulous lumbar pillow features hand-stitched Tenango embroidery by the Otomi women of Mexico with a whimsical nature scene of birds and flowers in a soft khaki against off-white cotton muslin. The pillow cover is backed in a solid linen with a hidden bottom zipper. Surged and double stitched seams are added for durability and a tailored finish.

Textile Origin: Tenango embroidery can be traced to the Pre-Aztec Meso American period with designs inspired by pre-historic wall paintings reflecting the traditions and beliefs of the Otomi people living in harmony with nature. Our Otomi textiles are hand selected from our fair trade suppliers providing sustainable income for the Otomi women in this region, while cultivating and preserving their craft. This elegant bird motif in a soft neutral can easily be incorporated into your living space.
