Cushion CoverTraditional Textiles
This cushion cover is made by the weavers of Amanuban in Timor using cotton fibres in a supplementary warp wrap patterning technique on a background that has been dyed black with mud dyes. The solid rust color backing is made from handspun cotton and woven on a backstrap loom in Java and dyed with Ceriops tagal in the Threads of Life Dye Studio.
The motif on this cushion is called lan mese or the way of the ancestors. These handmade natural dyed cushions would be exquisite on a couch, chair or bed.
