Description

We love colours but we also like neutral colours! These Hmong Reverse Appliqué Cushion Covers are the perfect example… Made by Hmong artisans, these large cushion covers feature natural hemp, plus meticulous stitching skills on a cotton background.

The Hmong are highly skilled at reverse appliqué, an ingenious technique that shows off traditional Hmong patterns and motifs.

Did you know the motifs have meaning? The circular motif represents a snail. A symbol of interconnectedness and family. The double curls represent an elephant’s foot and symbolises prosperity. The motif in this specific cushion cover is called the “fish hook pattern.” New mothers embroider this design on their babies hats and baby carriers.
