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 subtle olive green colour is achieved by initially dying the fabric with leaves from the indigo plant. A concentrated mix of dye that has been extracted from the common Garcinia plant is then added to the fabric to transform its colour into the final olive 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.
