A piece of textile culture in your sofa..

These beautiful pillow covers are made from hand dyed and hand woven ikat fabric. Ikat is a technique of weaving that requires a great amount of precision of tying and dyeing silk yarn in order to achieve a desired pattern. These ikat pillows are bought from a Uzbek based company that works closely with the most talented artists and designers within their fields. The money generated through sales is used to support these artists and designers who otherwise would be struggling making a living doing what they love.
