These square cover pillows are meticulously handwoven on traditional looms, preserving indigenous techniques that have been passed down through generations. The distinctive white and colored horizontal chain-like design exudes a timeless charm, while a vibrant colored tassel in the upper left corner adds a touch of sophistication.
In a world dominated by mass production, our pillows stand out as handmade treasures. Each piece is a testament to the beauty of imperfections, with no two knots or curves alike.
By working with women in rural communities of El Salvador, we not only provide them with stable employment but empower them to be self-sustainable. Your purchase contributes to transforming lives and fostering hope. We adhere to fair trade norms, ensuring our communities receive fair compensation.
Our commitment to innovation merges contemporary designs with traditional techniques, creating products that adapt to the demands of the modern market.
Cultural Heritage Woven into Every Thread
These pillow covers are more than just home decor; they represent a cultural legacy. The "Hand-Woven Stories Community" keeps the technique alive, passing it down from master artisan Mr. Don Ciro Castro to the vibrant young men and women of the community.

58% of the people that live in rural areas in El Salvador live in overcrowded conditions. When there is overcrowding in families, there is a higher risk of certain problems occurring, such as domestic violence, family disintegration, poor school performance, among others.
300 SALVADORANS TRY TO MIGRATE TO THE UNITED STATES DAILY DUE TO LACK OF WORK OPPORTUNITIES.
When Lula Mena began working in rural communities, many of the young women wanted to immigrate to the United States. Now that they have seen that there is an opportunity for a better life in their community, their perception of immigration has changed. They feel more confident that they will be able to provide for their families without having to leave the country. We want to continue to grow in order to offer more young adults the opportunity to work with us and avoid immigration.
One of the major challenges we faced when we began working with women was gaining the approval of their husbands. Most of the husbands and family members worried that the women would not be able to work and meet the household’s responsibilities.
Now, their husbands prepare dinner, take care of the children, and offer them support. There is still a strong sexist culture, “machismo”, in rural areas of El Salvador that we are trying to change by empowering women.
