Vintage Embroidered Sam Nuea Rectangle Cushion 1


This cushion cover is made from a vintage embroidered textile Circa 1960 from the Sam Nuea region of Loas located on the north east border with Vietnam.

The design is from traditional patterns often found in blankets.

The textiles are woven in continuous supplementary weft technique using indigo dyed hand-spun cotton.

This piece has a very finely woven diamond motif in black cotton on an ivory cotton backing.

A few threads of the woven motif are loose in a few select places, but the overall condition is very good and consistent with its age.

The fabric has been washed and well cleaned before being turned into pillow.

This is a really unique product documenting a part of geometric design history and culture.
