Swat Valley Wedding Cushion
This is an exquisite and beautiful large cushion dating from c1900 that was made as part of bride's dowry. It is densely embroidered in tiny stitches on the front and the back which was originally plain has been replaced with antique linen.
I was lucky enough to buy a few of these cushions from a private collection and they are in immaculate condition.
The buttons have been replaced with a zipper and I have made a new cushion pad.
Cushions of this size are perfect for modern sofas with low backs, or to dress a bed. They also make unique wedding presents as they are dowry textiles themselves.
It is available to view in my studio in Purley by appointment or please ask for shipping quote.
