This striking cushion is made from genuine vintage kimono fabric from the early 1970's. It depicts an abstract bamboo trellis in sunny yellow and a richer custard mustard yellow on a cream back ground. (NB yellow is particularly hard to see correctly on computer screens. The yellows seen here a little richer and warmer in real life). The silk has a minute trellis pattern woven into it also giving the cushion a further dimension. The reverse of the cushion is in the same vintage kimono silk. Please note this fabric is handprinted and is not entirely symmetrical!

Whilst feeding my addiction to kimono fabric I was amazed to discover that Japan was heavily influenced by western modernist design in the 1950's and 60's. I have found fabrics heavily inspired by Eames and Day. As with European vintage print fabric, these are highly collectable. But of course THIS is hand printed, 100% silk and this cushion is entirely unique.
