Geometric motifs that resemble butterflies contrast with red and colorful stripes, decorating the front of this Mexican cushion cover. The Hernandez Lazo Family weaves the wool fabric by hand and colors it with natural dyes. A plain back of off-white cotton back has an opening to insert a cushion.
The dyes are taken from natural plants, bark, seeds and cochineal in an ancestral Zapotec process. Thus, the colors may vary slightly.
