Zabuton Floor Cushion

Textile craft-artist Junko Kikuchi uses old and vintage linens and fabrics from various regions including Japan and Northern and Eastern European to produce her clothes, bags and textile accessories. Junko dyes her fabric repeatedly over long periods of time using persimmon based dyes and mordants such as iron, copper, titanium, tin and aluminum to create textiles with varied rich warm tones. Seasonal changes in temperature and humidity affect the results of the dyeing process making each dyed batch unique.

Kikuchi-san's textiles are stiff while new but will gradually soften with age and use. The aged fabrics have may have small tears, rough edges and crease lines.
