Oaxaca is a state-recognized for representing culture, traditions, heritage, and stories through the natural dyeing and design of its textiles.
In the southern region, fifty minutes away from the capital of Oaxaca, there is a town called Santo Tomás Jalieza where the inhabitants preserve tradition and carry out beautiful creations with a pre-Hispanic technique recognized nationally and internationally.
The process is carried out with the help of real pieces of art called "backstrap looms", each artisan can use different materials such as organic cotton, wool, and yarn. To all this they can add different traditional patterns of the region, giving it a unique cultural design.
At Nima, our pillows are made out of wool or 100% cotton threads by a women's cooperative in Oaxaca, all of this is made start-to-finish in a fair trade environment.
