Meet the Artisan
Artisan Rosita Perez co-created these charming folk-art animals in Mexico’s central Chiapas Highlands, an area known as the "Endless Land". She uses a technique known as the back loom. The humble backstrap is considered primitive, yet has produced some of history’s most stunning textiles. An indigenous Mayan process, backstrap looming has been a tried and true textile process for thousands of years.
Made from 100% wool using this ancient Mayan technique, premium weaving is evident in every thread. These playful plush pieces are said to capture the soul of their maker. We think they’ll capture yours, too.
