Description

Our Thai cross stitch cushions have been upcycled from Skirts made by the Hmong tribe in Northern Thailand. Each skirt consists of approx. 4 metres of fabric which is tiered with various panelled patterns and embroidery. It is then pleated and tied around the waist. An incredible amount of time goes into making each one. Features include a cross stitch and a hand tied indigo batik panel of fabric.

Hmong Batik refers to an age old technique of applying hot wax onto hemp to create intricate designs using symbols from their surroundings. Once the cloth is covered with the desired drawing and the wax has dried, it is dyed in a natural indigo vat. It can be dipped multiple times to achieve the desired shade of indigo. The cloth is then boiled which removes the wax ‘resist’ and leaves the pattern showing.

These cushions are truly unique and never to be repeated.
