This patchwork is made from pieces of hand loomed silk, which are each hand dyed with natural dyes to give this rich variety of hues. The yellow is dyed with weld, the rich mustard hue is dyed with a mix of weld and fustic, and the green piece was first dyed with weld and then over-dyed with indigo (blue). All of these silk pieces are stitched onto an organic cotton canvas backing for durability.
The cushion back is made from recycled cotton cloth and features an envelope opening. By avoiding the use of zips or other haberdashery this item is completely compostable and can be returned to the earth at the end of its useful life.
This cushion cover is approximately 45x45cm which suits a 50x50cm pad (not included).
