Miao collar cushion


Code: CAPE10


W: 25" (63.5 cm)H: 22" (55.9 cm)

This cushion is made from a large Miao festival collar. The needle work is extraordinary and would have taken its creator up to a year to do. It's made up of applique and embroidery on a tiny scale. You need to spend a bit of time just looking at it to appreciate the skill in making it. The pattern depicts a map of the ancient 5000 year old capital of the Miao ancestors, Chisou. I have backed the cushion with hand dyed green vintage hemp. The cushion has a zip fastener and feather pad.
