Embroidered Tribal Pillow Cover, Vintage Bukhara, Item 2

Description

A Pakistani importer walked into our shop one day with a bunch of textiles. Yummy! We got a bunch of these pillow covers back then, the good old days when we had our gallery in Chicago. The pillows are made up of remnants of Bukhara embroideries sewn crudely together.

Bukhara is the capital of the Bukhara province in Uzbekistan, but it is also an embroidery and weaving style. Bukhara needlework and weaving are found abundantly in Afghanistan, Turkey, and other countries along the Silk Road.

The remnants used in this pillow are gorgeous! The workmanship of the re-made pillow is NOT. This piece is actually better used as a tabletop textile or framed. If you decide to use it as a pillow, you will have to stuff it with poly-fill or whatever you want to use as it is not a standard square shape. I would recommend reinforcing the seams with a sewing machine or fabric glue.

We did have these in our gallery for $120 and sold a lot of them at that price. We are offering this one at $60. (We are listing two similar ones so check our shop to see if the other is still available).

Back is a navy blue cotton fabric with a zipper (and it works!).

Dimensions:

17" x 15"
Metric: 43 cm x 38

Estimated age: 50 years+ on the textiles.

The last photo shows the back.


Afghanistan has been at the heart of the crossroads for the Silk Road for centuries. Nomads and generations of ethnic groups have thrived on trade and beautiful handicraft skills. Textiles, embroidery and carpet weaving continue to represent a plethora of skills that extend on into metal work, wood work, and ceramics. Designs reflect both the beauty of nature and life of spirit in choice of colors and fluidity of the design.

Afghan Tribal Arts has been working with Afghan artists for more than 20 years. Handcarved semi-precious beads are the core focus of the business, but we also have a huge inventory of old and new textiles, carvings and metal work. Visit our shop here on Etsy to see our beautiful treasures!

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
We prefer Pay Pal. Customers are given a three day grace period for payments, but immediate payments are deeply appreciated.

Returns & exchanges

I accept returns on any purchase for any reason. I believe not seeing the item right in front of you is the downside of buying/selling online, so I am happy to take things back that do not fulfill your expectations. I have had very few returns over the years and I work hard on photos and descriptions in order to describe the item as best as possible.

Returns must be done within 10 days of item receipt. I refund the purchase, but not shipping.

Shipping policies

I ship world wide and offer free shipping on purchases over $100. Multiple purchases are combined into one shipment.

Etsy has a system during the listing process where we have to estimate how much an item will cost in shipping if purchased with another item. This can be difficult given that I have a range of sizes and weights that could end up in a mix very different from the amount quoted. I refund the difference if it is over $.50 and often cover the expense if it's more than what was estimated, but every now and then, it might be too big of a difference. I can fit lots of the smaller items into a flat rate envelope, but on larger pieces, it would be best to ask about shipping if the total will be under $100.

International customers- I've had to revise this free shipping offer on heavier items- but I'll cover at least $20 on shipping.

Prices are quoted for USPS flat rate envelopes or priority mail, but I can ship snail mail if preferred. I use simple packaging, recycling when possible. I use Pay Pal's shipping services which provides a bar code and excellent tracking services, so I normally do not recommend insurance and confirmation, but can include it if requested. Customer pays for the extras.

International customers, we are not allowed to describe our packages as "gifts". I know it decreases your customs fees, but other sellers have gotten into trouble for that, so it's really not a good idea.
