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. These panels are dyed with three beautiful ancient hues; weld to give yellow, madder to give a pinkish hue, and indigo for blue. All of these silk pieces are stitched onto a lightweight cotton calico backing.
The cushion back is made from lightweight cotton calico 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).
