Vintage Swati Pillow

Vintage Swati Pillow

Code: SWAT03


W: 27.5" (69.9 cm)H: 12.5" (31.8 cm)


This delightful pink silk marriage pillow from the Swat Valley dates to around 1930. The silk embroidery is a lovely strong pink and it is in very good condition apart from a small patch of wear (shown). I have backed the cushion with a blue and white striped vintage Buyi minority hand-woven cotton, and added a  zip fastener and feather pad.

In order to preserve the condition of this lovely old textile I wouldn't recommend it for a sofa, but it would be beautiful as a decorative pillow to dress a bed.
