Gilt threads catch the light and the brocade UME blossoms are known as the 'flower of peace' and are seen as a protective charm against evil. You will receive a FREE Hunted and Stuffed guide to symbols in Japanese textiles with your order.
The pillow is strengthened and protected inside by a cotton lining, each cushion is fully over-locked and sewn with a concealed zip at the base for easy removal. Luxurious cream/beige cotton velvet is used on the reverse to compliment the vintage brocade.
Filled with a British made luxury quality feather pad. Each cushion is hand made in the UK and comes with it's own foiled tag that details the date and origin of each beautiful textile.
