The creativity of this seahorse pillow pet is brought to you by the Guatemalan weaving cooperative, Y’abal.
This small seahorse is made from a variety of handwoven Guatemalan fabrics in a range of sunny multicolors–yellow, green, blue and orange. Each side of the seahorse used different colorings, each one designed to delight. The pet is filled with a synthetic-fiber stuffing.
Y’abal is a social enterprise in the highlands of Guatemala that partners with indigenous women’s cooperatives to promote the art of backstrap weaving and create a handwoven collection inspired by Mayan traditions.
