Matilde is 85 years old and started weaving at the young age of 15, taught by her mother. Who was taught by her mother before her. Throughout her life, she wove hundreds of cereal bags and pillow covers. In her small workroom, she has a big wooden loom by the window. It’s an impressive construction, hand-built by her husband as a gift after marriage.
The linen cereal bags that Matilde grew up weaving are what inspired our pillow covers. These covers are kept as natural and original as possible when upcycled and repurposed. Indeed, the once-forgotten treasures have a second chance at life. And with them, so do the stories, traditions, and people behind them.
