Free of dyes, this rich terracotta color is grown naturally by the cotton flower.

Naturally colored cottons are heirloom varieties of cotton with roots tracing back thousands of years, that contain brown, green, or reddish pigments within their own fibers. These breeds exhibit not only uniquely beautiful undyed hues, but also offer greater resistance to UV radiation, bacterial growth, mildew, staining and water due their substantially higher concentrations of tannins and protective waxes in comparison to white cotton. Naturally colored cottons are more drought tolerant and pest resistant, making them easier to grow organically.

Behind the Hill is a woman-owned textile company based in Brooklyn, New York creating subtle statement pieces for home decor out of exclusively wild growing naturally colored cottons in partnership with Indigenous communities in Mexico and Guatemala who still practice traditional methods of growing, spinning, and hand weaving.

Designed in New York, handwoven in Guatemala.
