Tussah silk cushion with tassels

Code: ORI03


W: 25" (63.5 cm)H: 17" (43.2 cm)


I was able to make 3 beautiful cushions from a vintage shawl from Orissa. The shawl is handloomed from Tussah silk and cotton and has a beautiful slubby texture from the hand spun silk. The colour of the silk is quite dark in places and the cotton is a natural dye the colour of terracotta. There is a pretty flower pattern on the cushion front and the back is plain. I've added handmade tassels in rust coloured linen. The cushion has a zip fastener and feather pad. The other 2 cushions are listed separately.
