Our Miao Wedding Blanket Pillow features a fragment of a one-of-a-kind vintage textile from China. Artisans from the Miao group weave cotton with silk threads to create these brocade fabrics, which were traditionally used as wedding blankets.
The Miao are a minority ethnic group native to the mountainous regions of Southwestern China. Traditionally, a young bride and her family would weave a complex and detailed textile to serve as a gift to her future groom and his family. These wedding blankets feature elaborate brocade motifs using techniques that are passed down from generation to generation.
This pillow is 12” x 20” and comes stuffed with a removable down/feather insert enclosed by an invisible zipper. The back side of the pillow features the same original textile and our signature Meridian tag.
Our Miao Wedding Blanket Pillow contains an authentic and high quality piece of a textile from China. Due to its entirely handmade creation process, no two pillows are exactly the same. Minor imperfections may be visible that speak to the handmade process and tell the story of its creator.
All of our textiles are handcrafted using the finest natural materials. To prevent loosening the shape or weave of the vintage cloth, we recommend dry cleaning our pillow covers.
