Details

Fat and sassy, a furry kitten curls up in a ball for a catnap. The pampered pet of a young Thai woman, this cat's life is one of lazy luxury. Alaya Cholprasertsuk's design depicts the lady and her pet using batik on cotton. Original and beautiful, these cushion covers are a perfect gift for those who fancy felines.

Batik is a fabric art in which the cloth is stretched on a wooden frame and the design sketched with a pencil. Then a mixture of melted wax and resin (70%/30%) is painted onto areas where color is not desired and the fabric is dipped in a solution of reactive dye, water, salt, and sodium bicarbonate. When the fabric is crumpled into the dying solution, the wax cracks, creating an attractive network of fine lines. The wax is removed and process is repeated for each color utilized. Finally, the cloth is washed and rinsed to remove any excess dye.

This pair will feature the same design, but the colors may vary slightly to those pictured, making each a unique work of art.

"Lots of compliments"

Interesting piece that is easily worn with many things. It s a tiny bit restrictive and not as soft as I d hoped, but not a problem.

"Fun and durable cushion covers"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Adds color and flavor to any room. Well made and both a comfort and a conversation piece. Does not fall into the attractive but uncomfortable material clash - on the contrary, the color is true and not wearing, and the fabric is non irritating.
