This cushion is made up of a traditional cloth woven in Sulawesi using natural dyes and traditional ikat motifs. The solid coloured back panel of this cushion is made from handspun heirloom cotton and woven by the community of weavers in Tuban Java. It was then dyed with natural indigo from Strobilanthes cusia using natural processes at the Threads of Life Dye Studio on Bali.

The motif on this cushion is called tonoling, the name of a compound near Rongkong to the north of the Karataun weaver group. This motif refers to the relationship through marriage between the two areas. This motif is a reminder of the importance of relationships.

These handmade natural dyed cushions would be exquisite on a couch, chair or bed.

Woven in Karataun, Sulawesi, 2019.
