Turquoise and Magenta Tulip Silk Cushion

A vivid combination of vibrant Bursa silk matched with pure Indian silk, set off by Ottoman motifs with gold highlights, make this cushion an eye catching attention getter.

The same tulip motifs can be found in Turkey, decorating walls of Iznik tiles, gliding across silk textiles, sparkling from the gilding on steel armour and gracefully endowing beautiful carpets from the Ladik region. The craze for the tulip flower among Ottoman court society gave rise to the Tulip Period, or Tulip Era, from 1718 – 1730. As for Bursa silk, traditionally Bursa was famous for being the largest centre of the silk trade on the lucrative Silk Road during the Byzantine, and later the Ottoman, empires.

The backing of this cushion is of pure Indian silk, and the filler is included.
