Our Lao Indigo Pillow features a fragment of a one-of-a-kind vintage textile handwoven by the Lao Tai people of Northern Vietnam.
In this region, weaving techniques are passed down from mother to daughter. Their distinct patterns and motifs are deeply rooted in animism, or the belief that all objects, places and creatures possess a spiritual essence. The symbols in this pillow represent mythically-charged depictions of animals and plants that have a significance to the particular weaver's family and their history.
This pillow is 12” x 22” 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 Lao Indigo Pillow contains an authentic and high quality piece of a textile from Vietnam. 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.
