After many months searching high and low, this panel of a Vintage Chinese wedding panel was found. Originally made to decorate the bride & groom’s bed, nowadays panels are used for cushions or panel pieces as a wall hanging.
The process in which it was created was by a wax paste resist method. A wax paste was applied to the cotton to create a pattern. Once dried, the fabric was dipped into indigo numerous times to create the desired shade of Indigo. The wax paste was then peeled off, leaving the beautiful design underneath.
The panel that we used for this range has faded into a lovely grey shade over time. Please be keep in mind that these vintage panels are incredibly hard to find due to their age and as such, we ask you to be gentle and treat with care in your home. This is a feature décor item and will never be repeated. Each cushion may show small signs of age, fading, random wax spots and uneven pattern – these are all signs of handmade textiles which we believe to be ‘perfect imperfections’ and are to be cherished.
