Handprinted, handmade botanically 'eco' printed kimono silk cushion cover and cushion pad [CU04].


The textured kimono silk upper side was botanically 'eco' printed sustainably, by steaming in my trusty fish kettle with sumac leaves,  hand dyed with cochineal and logwood. The unusual texture on the kimono silk adds to the cushion cover's pattern.


The heat and moisture in the botanical  'eco' printing process released the plant pigments and transferred them to the kimono silk, which was prepared with potassium aluminium sulphate mordant and a light iron  solution. The logwood dye was applied by a 'carrier' blanket.


The blue under side of the cushion cover was made from cotton. 


The cushion pad is filled with recycled polyester.
