The last photo shows a cushion cover in size 18'' with a strip of linen on one side. Covers larger than 15'' will have a strip like this. The cover shown in the photos fits a standard size insert 40x60cm (16x24'') (inserts not included).

A note on the kimono fabric used at the front which restricts the sizes of cushion covers. It is a Japanese fabric for making a kimono and as all kimono fabrics it is narrow ca. 37cm ( 14.5'') wide and so restricts the size of the pillow covers that may be made.
Zip fastening in the seam.


*The complimenting colourful cover shown in the first photo is sold separately/
