Afghanistan, Myanmar, Lebanon, Colombia & UK, Ishkar, Kachin Bolster Cushion
Product name: Kachin Bolster Cushion
Type of product: cushion cover
Description (story of the item): This exquisite cotton cushion cover is handwoven by master craftsmen in Kachin province, Myanmar. It is a vibrant piece
which makes a luxurious addition to any bedroom.
The fabric which makes up this bolster cushion is a true labour of love. Woven on a traditional wooden handloom, each piece has the feeling of embroidered detailing, whereas, in fact, the intricate pattern is incorporated into the weave of the fabric
using an extra weft figuring technique. To produce the finely detailed border takes one artisan 15 days to set up the loom, and a further four days to weave just a single meter of fabric. The diamond pattern used in this bolster cushion draws inspiration from the motifs commonly featured on the traditional skirts for Kachin women, known as longyi. We have adapted the design by using two tones of yarn on the weft and warp to give the piece a textured, quality.
