Ethically made by upcycling a vintage Japanese obi belt (used to tie kimono) which dates from the Mid Showa period (40+ years). Each cushion comes with hand foiled tag which details it's edition number.

The Phoenix (Ho-o) traditionally appears in times of peace and prosperity. It will only alight on the paulownia tree (also featured in this design) and will only eat bamboo. Revered as a sacred messenger between the worlds. We will send you our Hunted and Stuffed guide to symbols in Japanese textiles FREE with every order.

The front is made from upcycled vintage Japanese obi silk which is woven with real gilt thread. The reverse is made from upcycled vintage kimono silk in black.
