The Raya Thai Weave Pillow + Down Insert is from an Artisan Weaving Cooperative in Northern Thailand. Completely handmade from start to finish, these lovely pillows exhibit the subtleties of natural dyes and handweaving. Colors are derived from roots, berries and leaves which yield rich, subtle colors of graphite gray and a warm black. A special, patterned weave adds refinement, and a subtle band of ikat down the middle enriches the overall design. The cooperative was formed after WW II to preserve the traditional dyeing and weavings techniques of the region. All the cotton is grown, spun and woven on the land.Comes with down insertHand or machine washable in cold water; air dry to avoid shrinkage. Dry cleaning for large pieces is advisable.
