These cushions are made from a vintage Zhuang Nung wedding blanket. The blanket is hand loomed in thick cotton and has an iconic design from the Nung ethnic group within the Zhuang minority. It is known as salt and pepper. I absolutely love it and have bought several blankets in different colours. The colours on this blanket are watermelon red, black, pale indigo and yellow ochre. It's quite a soft palette of natural colours, but because I have used the reverse of the blanket for the right side, they are still nice and bright. The blankets are woven on narrow looms, around 13" wide so the larger cushions have the seam of 2 panels to give a larger front. I've backed the cushions with a vintage handloomed cotton textile in blue and white. It has a lovely slubby texture from the knots and bumps in the weave and picks out the blue from the cushion fronts. There are zip fasteners and feather pads.
