African Pillow Geometric Gold Blue Green Purple Hand Painted in South Africa Xhosa Tribal Textile Fair Trade Free Shipping U.S.
African Pillow Geometric Gold, Blue, Green, Purple. Handmade in South Africa by a Xhosa tribal artist. The back is solid black cotton with an envelope opening for placing a pillow insert.
The fabric is 100% cotton, but it's difficult to tell that it's only cotton because of the satin sheen, layers of paint and the method these textiles are made using porridge and other traditional organics in a way that some countries use wax.
While in South Africa, I found that all of the artisans I met who made tablecloths or tapestries, also made matching pillows/cushion covers. You will see some of the tablecloths in the Dining Section of this shop.
If you are drawn to this style of work; you will love the other handcrafted textiles by this Xhosa artist.
Approximate Dimensions: 18" X 18"
PILLOW INSERT NOT INCLUDED
