HAND-DYED IN JAPAN
Rich, earth tones are highlighted with these organic cotton throw pillows––dyed using natural plant pigments.
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 slate grey is created with colours extracted from the cochineal, a South American cactus insect with a vivid pink hue. The cloth is then soaked in iron-rich mud from local rice fields which balances out the pink colour and turns it into a silvery grey.
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.
