Pillow with Vintage Chinese and Japanese Patchwork

About

Made by a Chicago artist who collects vintage textiles, this handcrafted pillow features broad swatches of vintage Chinese and Japanese fabrics. The silk techniques that combine to form this pillow are fundamental to the formation of contemporary fashion aesthetics. Made with patches of vintage Japanese men's suiting combined with patches from vintage Chinese men's qipao robes, the interwoven pattern creates a cozy work of art for the home.
