Vintage Chinese Yee Batik Cushion

This Yee Batik cushion, made from genuinely old Chinese painted batik provides the perfect background to applique work in fabric and gold foil. Historically, batik is done by ethnic people from Guizhou Province, in the south-west of China. The Miao, Bouyei and Gejia people use a dye resist method for their traditional costumes, made up of decorative fabrics, which they achieve by pattern weaving and wax resist. Almost all the Miao decorate hemp and cotton by applying hot wax then dipping the cloth in an indigo dye. The cloth is then used for skirts, panels on jackets, aprons and baby carriers. Like the Javanese, their traditional patterns also contain symbolism; the patterns include the dragon, phoenix, and flowers.

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