Product Description

These cushion covers are made from fragments of antique Tush Kiyiz, a traditional form of Kyrgyz embroidery.

In Naryn, the heart of Kyrgyzstan, Erkengul collects these fragments and turns them into contemporary cushion covers. Each design is a limited edition.

Tush Kiyizs were traditionally hand embroidered by mothers upon the birth of a daughter, and sewn over a period of several years until the girl’s wedding day. The finished embroidery hung in the yurt and new home of the daughter as a constant reminder of her family. Sadly, few people still embroider Tush Kiyizs.

The fragments vary and are taken from Tush Kiyizes all across Kyrgyzstan. The cushion cover features a fold fastening, and is made from cotton.

Please note that as these are antiques the centre piece of fabric may show signs of age and should be treated with care.

The cushion cover comes filled with a 16″ duck feather inner.

Packaging

This cushion will be wrapped in recycled tissue paper and posted in a biodegradable plastic bag.
