Baule cushion

Code: BAUL03


W: 24" (61 cm)H: 16" (40.6 cm)


These beautiful cushions are made from a lovely old strip-weave by the Baule ethnic group from the Ivory Coast. The textile was handloomed in narrow strips which were then sewn together to make a larger cloth. The pink stripe down the middle of the ikat woven centre is just delightful. For the back of the cushions I've used a vintage handwoven textile from the Songjiang weaving district of Shanghai and this gives a more modern twist to the lovely old patina of the Baule cloth. I've lined the cushions to support the cloth and there are zip fasteners and feather pads.
