Patchwork cushion in minority textiles

Patchwork cushion in minority textiles

Code: PAT01


W: 23" (58.4 cm)H: 16" (40.6 cm)


I've made this cushion from a patchwork of vintage handwoven textiles that are coloured with natural dyes. The textiles are from the cotton borders that surround Chinese minority wedding blankets. Mainly the Maonan and Buyi minorities, and the natural dyes are persimmon, indigo and sienna. The colours are wonderfully deep and soft and I think are beautiful together. I've backed the cushion with an indigo dyed cotton, and there is a zip fastener and feather pad.
