Pink wedding blanket cushion

Pink wedding blanket cushion

Code: ZHUANG555


W: 22" (55.9 cm)H: 17" (43.2 cm)


These cushions are made from a pink vintage Zhuang wedding blanket. The pink silk symbols are now a soft colour, having faded over time from a much stronger pink. The woven silk has a lovely soft sheen to it. These wedding blanket panels are woven on narrow looms, approx. 13" wide so I have pieced them together to get a larger sized cushion. The patterns don't match up exactly as thy are old and handwoven. The cushions are backed with an ivory coloured Tussah silk which offsets the sheen of the pink, and there are zip fasteners and feather pads.

These wedding blankets are very hard to find now in good enough condition and the price has rocketed, so buy this while you can.
