Antique Japanese hand woven textile dyed with natural indigo. This textile was made using the traditional katazome resist dye technique: a hand cut stencil is used to apply a resist paste to the textile before dipping into the dye vat. This process is repeated for each dye used. Many antique Japanese cotton textiles served a domestic utilitarian purpose, this textile was likely once part of a futon cover.
Constructed from repurposed vintage textiles, this pillow is framed with antique indigo, backed with antique handspun European linen and finished with an invisible zipper. Please note that these pillows come with a down insert and not our standard eco-friendly fiber fill.
