Natural Indigo Laos Ikat Cushion

Natural indigo dyed ikat made by rural artisans in the Savannakhet Province of Laos is used to make this stylish cushion. 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.
