The Silkkikuikka (Silk Worm) print by Maija Isola is woven with a jacquard knit into this cotton and linen cushion cover, preserving the natural beige color of the materials. An all-around fringe adds to the soft and cozy aesthetic. The pattern came to Isola when she was "dancing with brushes," as she said in 1961. After evenings spent painting in gentle, sweeping brushstrokes to the sway of music, this rhythmic pattern was born. It has a concealed side zipper to easily remove from an insert for machine washing.
Please note: The cushion cover is cut from fabric with a long repeat, so the section of the design featured on each piece may vary.
Optional insert is polyester-filled and hypoallergenic.
If ordering with insert, item cannot be gift wrapped.

I wish these came in an Extra-Large or Extra-Extra Large size (like the Haapaenimi Pillows).
