Exalting the textile expertise of Thailand's Hmong hill tribe, Simone Buys designs two elongated cushion covers. The batik motifs are stamped by hand on cotton; the men make the batik stamps used by women. The reverse side reveals the creamy color of natural cotton, and an overlapping flap permits insertion of the cushions.

As noted in my other reviews, I combined these pillow covers with Ms. Buys's Blue Hmong Charm, Modern Indigo and Thai Parallels pillow cover patterns and the look is dynamic! On the walls I put her Indigo Passion twin bedspread and Hmong Energy table runner. Furniture and walls are light gray with white floors and wood trim, and the deep rich blue brings the Costa Rica skies and sea views indoors! The photos do not do justice to the detail of the patterns or Ms. Buys's workmanship! I am eyeing the table mats and napkins for another purchase!
