The woman’s sarong that is used to make these cushions is known as Ei Ledo. It is tied, dyed and woven by a single woman from Savu. The cloth colours are very colorfast as they have been properly dyed with indigo and Morinda citrifolia.
The ikat miotif on this cushion is called Kebeba refers to a butterfly. If Kebeba is followed by “Mola’i “it would classify the motif as belonging to the Hubi Iki or Lesser Blossom matrilineal group. If “Morena” follows Kebaba it would belong to the Hubi Ae or Greater Blossom matrilineal group..
These cushions would be exquisite on a couch, chair or bed. Each cushion cover comes with an inner lining with zipper so all that is required is for you to add the Dacron and enjoy your handmade pillow.
