Tribal Akha Pillow | Hill Tribe Fabric Throw Cushion | Rustic Chic Decor | Hand Crafted Geometric Pattern 20x 20"
I've made these colorful eclectic pillows with a hand-sewn textile piece from the Akha Hill Tribe.
The Akha People reside in the mountainous areas of Laos, Thailand, Myanmar, and the Yunnan Province in China.
In their traditional textiles, it is common to see many hand-stitched geometric patterns accenting and embellishing their solid black clothing. This textile art skill has been carried through generations and now has a more modern simplistic look.
I love the contrast of the scarlet red cotton body with all the other splashes of color patched through the geometric pattern. The hand-sewn pattern and appliquéd diamonds are set on a raw linen background.
This textile art is intensionally imperfect. In fact, it is all of those little imperfections that make this work so authentic and unique.
The cushion is backed with the same bright red cotton.
This textile treasure is so versatile that it can work in a variety of different home interior styles, from a rustic, eclectic home to a modern home interior with distinct tribal artifacts.
Designed and handmade by Casa Karima.
