Colourful plaid. Decorative Pillow. Recycled Vintage Japanese Kimono


Limited edition pillow covers made from a high quality lightweight vintage Japanese kimono wool combined with new ecologically friendly undyed and unbleached natural grey linen at the back. Colourful retro plaid motif in teal, black, olive green, orange, white with camelia flowers scattered all over.
Contemporary eco friendly home decor.

composition: 100% wool (front), linen (back)
Care instructions: wash cold as wool. Iron on the linen side. May be dry cleaned.
Zip fastening.

The wool I used at the front is intended for making kimonos. I am lucky to have the entire bolt which is approximately 11m x 37cm (ca. 13 yards x 14.5'') and which is the amount of fabric required to make one full kimono, or ca. 20 pillow covers.
