huipil hand embroidered pillow


I was gifted a number of vintage huipiles that were brought back from Guatemala.  They were incredibly beautiful and were covered with hand embroidery.  They were very old so some parts of them were very worn out.  So I decided to "upcycle" them and piece together the most fantastic parts of embroidery to make a pillow.

Quilted Indigo Tie Dye Shibori Wall Hanging- Custom Home Decor

I was so excited when I was asked to make this large scale wall hanging!  My friend bought an apartment and wanted a big shibori piece for her living room.  I was given a lot of artistic freedom, which was so awesome!  I was honored that she asked me and I was excited to do some quilting!
