Dong indigo wedding blanket cushions

Code: DONG10 & 11


W: 32" (81.3 cm)H: 15" (38.1 cm)


These cushions are made from a vintage Dong wedding blanket which is a superb quality weave. The wedding blanket was handloomed pre 1950s and the yarn is a mixture of off white and indigo cottons. The looms were only abut 13" wide, so the narrow textiles were sewn together to make a broader cloth. Most wedding blankets are 2 or 3 widths across and then have a further border. The cushions are backed with indigo dyed cotton and there are zip fasteners and feather pads.
