Japanese Seat Cushion

Material: Cotton and Wool

These unique seat cushions are meticulously hand tied using a technique called Kurashiki Knotting that originated in a city of the same name in the Okayama prefecture of Japan.
Each cushion takes at least 2 months to produce. The craftswoman pays close attention to each stage of production, from selecting the wool to dying to the knotting process.

The premium wool threads she uses to make the cushions are typically used for weaving into Kimono fabric. Wool, a natural fiber, has temperature regulating properties due to its ability to absorb moisture. This means that the fiber stays cool during hot weather and warm in cold weather. This cushion is suitable to be used year-round.

All designs are original by the artist herself, inspired by the principles Mingei, also known as Japanese Folk Craft, and aspects of nature. She crafts these designs to add beauty and color to spaces while being simple and not too overpowering, keeping the cushions’ daily use in mind.

The skillful weave and quality materials make this cushion very durable. With proper care, these cushions can last over twenty years of use.
