The textile for this extraordinary striped ikat zabuton meditation cushion was hand woven and hand dyed at the Khmer Institute for Traditional Textiles (IKTT) in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Inspired by traditional designs, the subtle combination of natural dyes creates a rich landscape of colours and textures. The primary colour is a soft green made from a local plant called garcinia. It is framed with a black silk border and four gold silk corners.
We were struck by the outstanding quality of the IKTT textiles as soon as we saw them. These rare textiles are made using natural dying and hand-weaving techniques passed down from Cambodian elders - traditions which were being documented by Smithsonian Institute at the time of our trip.
