ISHKAR's vibrant green and pink cotton Kachin bolster cushion cover is handwoven by master craftsmen in Kachin province, Myanmar, using traditional wooden handlooms. Its bold colourway and elegant design make it a luxurious addition to any lounge or bedroom, especially when teamed with the matching bed cover.

This design looks embroidered but in fact, the intricate pattern is incorporated into the weave of the fabric. It takes one artisan 15 days to set up the loom, and a further four days to weave just a single meter. The diamond pattern on the Kachin bolster cushion cover draws inspiration from the motifs commonly featured on the traditional skirts for Kachin women, known as longyi

The fabrics used in this collection are woven by three young artisans. Nu Nu Pan aged just 17 was born in a refugee camp in Kachin state. She now works alongside Pain Paing, aged 22, and 23 year old Aung San Oo in the city of Myitkyina, Northern Myanmar. The completed fabrics are transformed into a final product at the Turquoise Mountain Textiles Atelier in Yangon.
