Benin cushions with tassels

Code: BEN01 & 02


W: 24" (61 cm)H: 16" (40.6 cm)


These beautiful indigo striped cushions are from a strip-woven cloth that dates to the middle of the C20 from the Benin Republic. The cloth is hand woven from hand spun cotton and has a wonderful slubby, knubby texture. There are several shades of indigo in the cloth and they are still wonderfully vibrant. I've backed the cushions with a contemporary thick cotton that has been dyed a similar shade of indigo and there are cotton tassels made from indigo dyed yarn. With zip fasteners and feather pads.
