Traditional Polish Lace Square Pillow Holder with Christmas Wafer & Hay Set, Holly Embroidery
Simple yet elegant, this lovely square pillow holder for wafer (oplatek) and hay (sianko) has specifically been designed to decorate the Christmas Eve (Wigilia) dinner table. According to the tradition, the Christmas wafer symbolizes the bread eaten daily, which is shared across each member of the family for peace and good luck. The bundle of hay, on the other hand, symbolizes the fact that Jesus was born in a manger.
This beautifully hand made pillow has two pockets to hold and display the Christmas wafer and hay. It is made of a 100% white cotton cloth and decorated with beautiful cotton lace. Because this adorable little pillow is hand made, the lace made for hemming may differ in pattern, which does not diminish its uniqueness and elegance. Make this adorable decoration the focal point on your Wigilia's table this year that could become a new family tradition for generations to come. Each pillow holder comes with one small Christmas wafer and a heap of hay.
