Cushion Cover - Handmade Indigo
Vintage textiles make a modern comeback with these batik pillows. They are made from pieces of traditionally handwoven hemp by the Hmong Hill Tribes in Northern Thailand. These repurposed pillows are then hand dyed with indigo from a centuries old method.
Due to the vintage nature of the textiles, each piece has beauty marks from a past life making each a work of art and truly one of a kind.

Who are the Hmong? They are an Asian ethnic group from the mountain regions of China, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand. Originally from southern China, the Hmong gradually migrated south during the 18th century due to political unrest and to find more workable land. Today, many Hmong are located in the remote thick forests and mountains of the northern Thai regions and are well integrated into Thai society. They are rich in culture, family, and art and are distinctive in their fabric patterns and vibrant costumes. The Hmong tribal groups have expressed their faith, belief and way of life into each piece of fabric, making each piece come to life with an amazing history behind it!
