Proud Mary was started in 2008 when owner, Harper Poe returned from volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in South America. After falling deeply in love with the indigenous peoples and brightly colored textiles she decided to combine her passions into a sustainable design business promoting social change. By providing a global exploration of textiles, Proud Mary, supports and empowers global artisans and their families while celebrating their beautiful work!
Created by a master-weaver in Guatemala City from digitally printed material, this graphic pillow marries high design with hand-craftsmanship. The rich, diamond-printed fabric is sewn into pillow covers in a family-owned Antigua workshop, and is accented with colorful handmade tassels at each corner. Each stitch tells a story of the hard working hands that crafted it, bringing life and interest to any room. To allow for greater market access of these artistic goods, contributing artisans are paid a fair wage so they may successfully and confidently commercialize their artwork. Handmade in Guatemala.
