These cushions are made from an attractive vintage Chinese textile from the Songjiang area of Shanghai. The textile was handloomed on a narrow loom in hand-spun cotton. The colours are natural dyes, predominantly indigo and white. The indigo colour is a really beautiful cobalt blue. There are slubs in the weave which are characteristic of hand spun and handwoven yarns, and these are knots used to join the threads. I've used the Songjiang for both sides of the cushions, and there are zip fasteners and feather pads.
