Songjiang cushions - dark check


Code: SONG11 & 12


W: 23" (58.4 cm)H: 17" (43.2 cm)

These cushions are made from vintage handloomed cotton textiles from the Songjiang area of Shanghai. It dates to the 1960s/1970s and was originally made for the production of Chinese workwear. It's handwoven on narrow looms out of thick cotton, and has a lovely slubby texture. I have 2 tones of check, this darker one and a lighter checked textile listed separately. They have zip fasteners and feather and down pads. The relatively simple designs are great to mix in with more show stopping textiles or feature in their own right in a shaker style interior.
