This is a really pretty silk brocade from the Republic of Lao. The brocade is handloomed cotton and silk and coloured with natural dyes. The textile was originally intended for a sindh or tube skirt that the women wear. The brocade being so decorative would be intended for a women of high status. The more brocade on the sindh the more important the wearer. The colours are really pretty, in peach, pink, lilac and green.  I've backed the cushion with a silk and cotton woven kutnu textile from Turkey to make it doubley gorgeous. There is a zip fastener and feather pad.
