Pillows & Throws Textiles from Thailand
Two beautifully designed and crafted, exquisitely embroidered, pillow covers. The craftsmanship is so fine and meticulous that the surface looks to be all one fabric. Gorgeous light blue with hints of purple at its darker place. Perfect for a summery feel. The backs are also lovely -- and the packaging they come in is just unreal. Love them.

I am very pleased with my purchase of these cushion covers. I love the vibrant colors. They suit my taste so well. I like something that has beautiful colors that make such a nice accent in my living room decor. I also like the beautiful artistry of the Thai technique used.
I coordinated Ms. Buys's Blue Hmong Charm pillow covers with her Thai Parallels, Modern Indigo and Blue Hmong Windows covers on pale gray sofas in my Costa Rica home to bring sea and sky indoors. The result is lovely. I also paired her Hmong Energy table runner and Indigo Passion twin bedspread as wall hangings against light gray walls - the effect is dynamic with white woodwork and floors! The Blue Hmong Charm design is much more detailed than the photos show; the little squares are very elaborate lattice work, and visually lush. The workmanship is excellent and cotton fabric substantial. My only suggestion is that the pillow backings be dyed a deep blue rather than left their natural ivory.
"Today my main concern is to praise the hands and lives of artisans who continue to offer vital dimensions to our lives. A fair price recognizes their expertise."
