Indigo Dyed Check Fabric Cushion

£45.00

A square cushion made with a piece of Chinese indigo-dyed hand loomed checked cloth.  This is a lovely smart looking check , a utility fabric which would have been used as coat lining, mattress covers and workwear. It has fine lemon yellow line and black line running amongst the weave.

This cushion has been made out of a single piece of fabric and we’ve left the selvedge exposed when sewing together to show its making story and provenance.

The cloth is around 50 years old but in unused condition.

We have used British sheep wool for the filler.

Dimensions: approx 36cm x 36cm.

Description

A square cushion made with a piece of Chinese indigo-dyed hand loomed checked cloth.  This is a lovely smart looking check , a utility fabric which would have been used as coat lining, mattress covers and workwear. It has fine lemon yellow line and black line running amongst the weave.

This cushion has been made out of a single piece of fabric and we’ve left the selvedge exposed when sewing together to show its making story and provenance.

‘*A selvedge  is a “self-finished” edge of a piece of fabric which keeps it from unravelling and fraying. The term “self-finished” means that the edge does not require additional finishing work, such as a hem or bias tape, to prevent fraying.’

The cloth is around 50 years old but in unused condition.

We have used British sheep wool for the filler. Wool is eco-friendly and sustainable, durable and long lasting, is anti allergenic and offers a soft, stable feel, allowing air flow and circulation. As a natural material, it is also compliant with fire safety regulations.

Cushions are a great way to update your space and this can be placed amongst your other cushions to add interest, colour and texture.

Dimensions: approx 36cm x 36cm.
