This cushion cover is made by the weavers of Amanuban in West Timor using cotton fibres in a supplementary warp technique. The solid coloured back panel of this cushion is made from handspun heirloom cotton and woven by the community of weavers in Tuban Java. It was then dyed with natural indigo using natural processes at the Threads of Life Dye Studio on Bali.
The motif on this cushion is called teke or gecko. The gecko along with the frog and crocodile are all representations of the ancestor. It is said if you hear a gecko call out it is acknowledging that what is being spoken is correct or true according to the ancestor.
These handmade natural dyed 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.
