Indigo Zhuang cushions with tasselled sides
These beauties are made from a panel from a vintage Zhuang minority wedding blanket. The wedding blanket is handloomed in cotton and dates to the middle of C20. The weaver was so skilled that the reverse side of the blanket is a neat as the front. So I've used the reverse for these cushions as I think it shows the pattern more clearly. I've added small tassels at the sides of the cushions from re-cycled jeans yarn. There are zip fasteners and feather pads.
