The Phou Tai women of Savannakhet Province are skilled in the ikat, or tie-dye technique, using natural indigo-dyes and cotton. Weaving the threads on four pedal looms, these textiles have a painterly effect, which we think look wonderful as cushion covers.
Front and back ikat design with envelope style closure.
SIZE: 40 x 40 cm
