Add one-of-a-kind item to your home with this pillow made from antique Japanese indigo katazome (resist-dyed) fabric with a very rare checkered pattern. I'm in awe every time I think of the work that a Japanese artisan put into precisely applying paste to every one of the white checks to make the checkered pattern. Out of all the Japanese textiles I've collected over the past several years, this is my favorite.

Pillow comes with cover and insert. 
- Cover measures 11" high x 22" wide.
- Pillow cover with 14" x 26" insert (as pictured) measures 11" high x 22" wide x approximately 4" deep. Insert has a cotton cover and 100% feather fill.

Antique exterior checkered fabric is backed with new heavy-weight cotton canvas for reinforcement.

Inside pillow edges are sewn with over-locking stitches for further durability.

Invisible zipper hidden in seam for easy removal as needed.

Great vintage condition. 13 checks with sashiko stitched repairs. Please use the zoom feature to view condition closely.
