Naturally-dyed Decor Loom: Cochineal & Cochineal


( / )

Decorate your home with a backstrap loom woven with naturally-dyed hues and eye-catching ikat designs inspired by traditional jaspe patterns in Guatemala. Bring a bit of heritage tradition to your living space, brightening up your home with an eco-friendly and responsibly-made product.

Designed by Mari and prepared from start to finish by our partner dyers and weavers at Lake Atitlán, each loom is handwoven and comes with all the real-life tools used attached. We think this is a fantastic way to showcase the heritage art of backstrap weaving, and we hope that it sparks many conversations with family and friends to share appreciation and knowledge of the processes involved.

This Cochineal & Cochineal version features threads dyed with - you guessed it - cochineal! The contrasting blue comes from a natural indigo from El Salvador.

Measurements for the textile (the wooden parts are a bit wider):

Width: 14 inches

Length: 26 inches


Naturally-dyed cotton yarns, hand-carved local wood, handmade maguey fiber rope for hanging.


Hang away from direct sunlight as natural dyes will fade with prolonged exposure to sunlight.

Please select all options.
