Pillow made in my Brooklyn studio from antique (late 19th/early 20th century) Japanese katazome (resist dyed) indigo and iron oxide dyed cotton fabric. One side has an amazing depiction of repeating hawks. The other side features light blue indigo dyed fabric with a large patch of the repeating hawk fabric. Sashiko style embellishments added by me.

In many years of collecting, I haven't come across anything like this stunning fabric - light blue indigo and iron oxide dyed as well as hawk katazome - all super rare!

Pillow with insert measures 17" high x 17" wide.

Comes with a 20" x 20" pillow insert as shown. Insert has a cotton cover and 100% feather fill.

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

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

Zippered closure.
