These cushions are made from a very beautiful handwoven Lao brocade. The brocade is woven in cotton and silk and the textile was destined to be made into a tube skirt or sindh that the Lao women wear. The fact that it has a lot of brocade pattern on the textile mean it was destined for a high status lady. The pattern is very complex and the weaver would have been very skilled. It would have taken a whole day to weave just a few inches. The colours are natural dyes and include green, pink, red mauve coral and off white. Ive backed the cushions with a striped silk from Gaziantep, Turkey and there are zip fasteners and feather pads..
