Add a great decorative accent to any room of the house with our handmade Dunes shibori natural dye pillow. We created the pattern on this shibori natural dye pillow at our studio using authentic stitch resist shibori techniques which ensure that this pillow is entirely unique. This pillow was simmered in an extract of myrobalan fruits for several hours to achieve the varying soft shades of yellow and brown. The warm tones of the handwoven cotton fabric work well with the natural colors to create a visually interesting pattern that evokes warmth and character.
The fabric on this pillow is a medium weight cotton that was grown, spun and woven by hand in Northeastern Thailand.
This particular design is a variation of the "mokume" or woodgrain technique created by rows of running stitches. Salts of alum and iron were selectively applied to different areas of the fabric to achieve the bands of varying shades. For more information on our dyeing process please visit our process page.

Avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight or excessive rubbing against white fabric. We recommend hand-washing separately in lukewarm water with mild detergent which contains no whitening or bleaching agents. If using a washing machine please select gentle wash function with cold water. Please air-dry in a shaded area. Iron on low temperature.
Although we wash each textile multiple times before shipping to remove excess dye particles there is still a possibility of colour transference occurring (during harsh rubbing or other close/vigorous interactions).
During the first few washes some brown or yellow pigment may appear in the water. This is normal and is a chemical compound characteristic of our indigo dye. Periodically removing this excess pigment will leave colours more vivid than before.
Synthetically dyed textiles are beautiful immediately after dyeing, while textiles dyed with indigo become more beautiful over time, developing their own characteristic shades with each day of use. Natural dyes are living colours and need to be cared for accordingly for best results. Please enjoy the gradual evolution of your naturally dyed textile.
