Salt and pepper cushion with tassels

Salt and pepper cushion with tassels

Code: NUNG10


W: 24" (61 cm)H: 16" (40.6 cm)


This cushion is 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 black, pale indigo soft brown and off white. It's quite a soft palette of natural colours, but the blue is lovely 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. The cushions are backed with plain linen, and I've added handmade coral-coloured tassels. There is a zip fastener and feather pad.
