This exquisite cushion is made from a rare cotton Maonan wedding blanket. The blanket is woven in thick cotton and is coloured with natural dyes. The colours would have been much stronger, there are touches of sage in the symbols but this has oxidised over time. The cushion is backed with natural vintage hemp, has a zip fastener and feather pad. There are 2 plain cotton tassels at each corner.


I cant stress enough how this quality of blanket is now impossible to find and prices have rocketed in general, due to scarcity and the weakness of sterling.
