This set will be any room's centrepiece! It is made from a vintage (around 50's-60s) chirimen silk from an un-stitched kimono. The combination of red, navy, light blue colours on custard/cream background with the golden outline on the palm leaves give this cushion a, luxurious and retro feel. The 18'' cushion cover has a navy linen/cotton border which I believe works well with the delicate silk and is reminiscent of the contrast between a heavy fabric on a Japanese obi belt worn with a fine silk kimono.

The cushion will work well on an armchair or sofa of nearly any plain colour. The colour is warm cream silk (silk slightly yellow in tone). Colour and textures are best shown on the detaill photo.

It is important to note that although the fabric has been carefully unstitched, dry cleaned and ironed, there is a minor crease and discoloration on the silk which are hardly noticeable and can be reasonably tolerated in a vintage item.

The bigger cover fits a standard square cushion size 18''x18'' (46x46cm). There is an invisible zip at the side of the cushion. Composition: Outer cover: silk, linen-cotton; inside lining is polycotton. Care instructions: dry clean only.

Useful to know: Kimonos are made of narrow strips of fabric (around 30cm/1ft wide) so I used a strip of linen fabric to make a bigger cushion.

I can supply a cushion the cover will fit: duck feather cushion for an additional EUR8.00 or a hollowfibre for the allergy sufferers for EUR6.50. However, I suggest that you buy a cushion locally as delivery charges outside Ireland are too high. If you wish to purchase the cushion, please ask me about delivery charges.
