This Mustard with Roosters cushion cover will bring the breeze of the mountains from far away into your home. Let’s enjoy the warm bright cheerful colours, while appreciating the old and remote cultures from the other side of the globe.
This item handmade with beautiful materials which are also handmade by Thai women, an ethnic group that lives in the mountains of Northern Vietnam.
The fabric used to make this item is home grown, hand spun and hand woven. The mustard yellow dye is extracted from roots of mountain trees. The beautiful red fabric with fun rooster motives is genuine vintage fabric from the 60s / 70s bought in the northern mountains of Vietnam. A Thai girl must bring a few yards of cloth to her husband’s family when getting married. This piece of cloth must be handwoven with home-ground and hand-spun yarns, all by herself. The more she brings the more respect she receives from others, as it represents her ability to take care of her own family. The beautiful cloth she makes shows her maturity, diligence, skills and patience – qualities a husband most expects from his wife. The cloth is not used but rather treasured as a keepsake. Sometimes they sell a part of it if they need money for the family, but they would never sell all, as it is believed that keeping this special cloth in the house is just like keeping the wealth and prosperity for the family.This lovely cloth is made with home-ground and hand-dyed cotton, then adorned with jacquard-weaving by hand loom with pure silk yarns.
This cushion cover is also lined with natural cotton fabric with stabiliser in between the layers adding to the weight and secures the shape. Lovely to the touch and made to last.
Smooth overlapping opening at the back.
