Pink and White Handwoven Uzbek Ikat Cushion

Subtle shades of pink and white matched with a deep, almost shocking pink. The distinctive design of this Uzbek ikat is inspired by forms found in nature – in this case the cotton plant. It illustrates the story of the weaver who started inventing new patterns by looking at clouds and flowers, reflected in water, and looks like a canvas painted by a refined colourist.

Ikat effect is achieved by applying bindings, that are resistant to dye penetration, to the threads in the desired patterns and then dyeing the threads.

The dyes used in this cushion are natural, and the fabric is 50% silk and 50% cotton. The back is a hot pink colour raw silk, and the filler is included. This cushion can nicely be combined with a similar cushion that is embellished with strips of handmade Moroccan djellaba braid (A01-038).
