Description

Our elegant silk cushion cover is woven by our master weavers at the Living Crafts Centre, although the pattern is inspired by the intricate embroidery skills of the Mien Yao.

Our master weavers created a supplementary weave pattern that features diamond patterns typically seen on Mien Yao wedding aprons. Weaving an embroidery pattern on the loom is testament to the skill of both the master Mien Yao embroiderers and the master weavers of Laos.

This cushion is made with handspun silk, from Bombyx Mori cocoons. Features a lined interior and zip closure. Insert not included.

  • Material: 100% silk
  • Care Instructions: Dry clean
  • Dimensions: 42 cm x 42 cm (16.5 inches x 16.5 inches)
