The fabric of our Estela piece is made by hand with organic cotton threads woven on pedal loom.
The light brown shade comes from coyuchi cotton or naturally colored cotton, without the need to dye. While the darker brown shade comes from the process of dyeing over wood fire with oak bark.
We highlight our Estela piece with a representation of a star, woven by hand using the ancient technique of reverse appliqué Mola. This technique originated from the Guna culture, closely connected to the stars and the spiritual realm.
Like the rest of the piece, the star comes to life with organic cotton fabric woven on loom. Its colors come from indigo plants (blue and green shades), zacatlaxcalli and marigold plants (yellow shades), and cochineal insects (pink and red shades). Cochineal insects reproduce on the nopal cactus and their color is extracted by leaving to dry under sunlight and boiling over wood fire.
Measurements: 77.5 cms long and 65.5 cms wide across the back.

As part of the artisanal craftsmanship process, slight color variations are possible, as every piece is unique.
