Story

A great solid foundation for all of your styling needs, these 100% natural pillows add the perfect finish touch to any couch, accent chair, or bed. Includes the pillow cover with a premium pillow insert.

The Kanai Kougei Workshop has mastered the ancient art of mud-dyeing using natural plant pigments. The dark navy colour is achieved by dying the fabric with leaves from the indigo plant. The process is repeated up to five times and then a mineral-rich mud is added to the indigo-dyed fabric to provide the final dark navy hue.

Handcrafted by a group of master dyers on Amami Ōshima, the largest of southern Japan’s Satsunan islands, each pillow is made start-to-finish in a small, fair trade environment.
