Blue & White Stripe Pagne Tissé Cushion. The Ice Blue
We love stripes and handwoven pagne tissé and this cushion has them all! It’s a fresh blue that would sit well as a feature cushion or combined with other pagne tissé cushions. Finished with a delicate black trim and a complimentary off white linen back.
About the fabric
Pagne Tissé - handwoven fabric on traditional looms from the Manjak people of Southern Senegal and Northern Guinea.
The beauty in this rich and complex weave lies not only in its look and feel, but also in knowing the exceptional amount of time it take to produce. It takes three days to set up the loom, connecting the hundreds of threads to make up the intricate design and then two weavers to manage it. An experienced weaver will take a day to weave 3-5 meters. It’s labour intensive art form that is becoming increasingly rare, a fading tradition that Tisserand Dakar seeks to promote and preserve with their beautiful and unique fabric lines.
