Laos Ikat Indigo Cushion

This one-of-a-kind cushion is made from handwoven cotton Laos ikat. Natural indigo dyed ikat is made by rural artisans in the Savannakhet Province of Laos. Belonging to the Phu-Tai ethnic tribe, these women are generational experts on all aspects of cotton processing – from ginning to spinning, indigo dyeing, and 'mutmee' – a tie-dye weaving technique. Interestingly, the Indigo dye is made from fermented leaves and shoots of the abundantly growing 'kharm' plant. Its making is an ancient art, steeped in fascinating myths.

The back of the cushion is 100% Indian silk, and the filler is included.
