Sumba pahikung cushions

Code: SUMBA27 & 28


W: 21" (53.3 cm)H: 14" (35.6 cm)


These wonderful geometric patterned cushions are made from a vintage tube skirt from Sumba island, Indonesia. The textile is handwoven in  thick cotton using the pahikung technique, where the pattern is developed with a supplementary warp. The colours are natural dyes in a lovely earthy pink and off white, with the yellow and indigo painted on after the weaving. I've backed the cushions with a vintage hemp dyed teal blue which offsets the colour of the weave beautifully.
There are zip fasteners and feather pads.
