This amazing vintage textile is upcycled from a vintage Japanese wedding gown dating from the Mid-Showa period (over 40 years old) and is in excellent condition. These gowns would cost the bride upwards of £30,000 when new because of the huge amount of fine detailed work that went into making them.
The textile is imbued with many auspicious symbols to wish the happy couple well on their wedding day. Wisteria, for example, signifies love. 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. Red silk is used on the reverse to compliment the vintage silk and has been repurposed from the lining of the original garment.
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.
