Japanese Seat Cushion - A Complete Care Guide

Product Care Guide

These distinctive seat cushions are meticulously handcrafted using a technique known as Kurashiki Knotting, originating from the city of Kurashiki in Japan's Okayama prefecture. Each cushion requires a minimum of two months to create. The artisan pays careful attention to every step of the production process, from selecting the wool to dying it and finally knotting it.

The premium wool threads used in crafting these cushions are typically reserved for weaving into Kimono fabric. Wool, being a natural fiber, possesses moisture-absorbing properties, allowing it to regulate temperature. This feature ensures the cushions remain cool in warmer weather and warm during colder seasons, making them suitable for year-round use.

All designs are original creations by the artist, drawing inspiration from the principles of Mingei, also known as Japanese Folk Craft, and elements of nature. The designs are crafted to bring beauty and color to spaces while maintaining simplicity and avoiding overwhelming the user.

These cushions are highly durable due to the skillful weaving technique and the quality of materials used. With proper maintenance, they can withstand over twenty years of regular use.

Care Instructions:

  • Clean the cushions periodically with a lint roller and gently stroke and brush the threads by hand in the direction of the thread.
  • Hand wash only using lukewarm water mixed with neutral detergent, then rinse thoroughly.
  • Avoid machine laundering; instead, use the spin cycle to remove excess water. It is recommended to air dry the cushions outdoors to preserve their freshness and color.
  • A cushion stopper can be used underneath if needed.

Enjoy the enduring comfort and elegance of these cushions, designed to provide lasting beauty with proper care.
