About the Artist

Behind the Hill is a textile company based in Brooklyn, NY. They create unique and contemporary pieces for home decor using a variety of heirloom cottons which grow wild in shades of pink, terra-cotta, green, beige, and white in Mexico and Guatemala. That’s right. They don’t use any dyes!

Behind the Hill partners with three communities of Indigenous people in Central America who still grow, spin, and weave color-grown cotton, the same way it has been done for centuries.
Their products come directly from Nature’s harvest and we are in awe of how her rainfall, sunlight and wind affect the texture and colors of our raw materials.

Designer's Perspective

These placemats are a great way to elevate your dining space—not only functional and beautiful, but divulging that the colored cotton grows just like that is sure to be a great conversation piece!
