The border of the pillow is an awakipa, a tubular weave that adorns and protects the textile edges. This design in particular is the chichilla (eye border) Like the "Evil Eye", it is believed it protects the textile, and its owner by reflecting bad energy away, allowing a change of fortune and luck to enter in.
