Zapotec/Oregon Large Woven Pillow #12PC
Francisco Bautista wove this pillow cover on a handmade treadle loom that he brought from the state of Oaxaca in Mexico to his new home in Sandy, Oregon. The central design is an “Eye of God” and the rich colors are hand dyed from natural materials. The red and dark brown both come from cochineal, an insect-based dye. Indigo, marigold flowers, and the common onionskin are other dye materials that Francisco used to color the woolen yarns for this piece. Francisco is primarily a rug weaver and uses his tapestry rug weaving techniques for his pillow covers. A fourth generation weaver, Francisco follows the Zapotec weaving traditions he knows as well as adding his own touches. Francisco’s wife Laura Gutierrez does some weaving and constructs the pillow covers using a black fabric zipper backing. This pillow measures 19 ½ in x 15 ½ in when lying flat and unstuffed. When stuffed with its plump polyfill pillow insert, the straight measurement across the center of the pillow is 17 in x 12 ½ in.
