Swat Valley cushion with green tassels

This cushion is one side of a vintage Swat Valley marriage pillow. The pink and red silk embroidery is in great condition and the colours are still vibrant for a textile of this age.
There are accents of blue, green and yellow in the design, so I've added double green tassels at the corners to lift the green from the pattern. If you like this cushion, its sibling is listed separately under stock number SWAT12.
The back is plain linen, there is a zip fastener and feather pad.

These big cushions look great on beds and a super king-size bed can take 2 of them.

I am inspired by the exquisite textiles designed and woven long ago by artisans often in some of the most challenging environments in the world. I love to find a new use for these textiles so that they become relevant in today’s interiors. Turning them into beautiful and unique cushions or lampshades or simply by framing them as a piece of wall art.

I particularly love the bright colours of the silk dowry textiles woven by the minority groups in South West China and the more organic raphia cloths and cotton stripweaves from the Kuba and Yoruba ethnic groups in West Africa.

My signature look mixes these bright and sophisticated silk brocades (especially the pinks!) with the contrasting rustic indigos and cottons, often embellished with embroidery or applique.

I work out of my studio in Purley, Surrey where you are very welcome by appointment to view current stock and other textiles or to discuss bespoke projects.
