A large, highly textured, one of a kind rag rug pillow (cushion).
The pillow is made from recycled, laundered denim jeans, with some mustard yellow cotton fabric and multi-coloured yarn.
The techniques used for making the pillow are hooking, prodding, couching and punch needle, worked on a burlap (hessian) base. This is finished on the inside with a fine layer of latex.
The lines of color differ in width and height. The varying tones of worn denim give a mottled effect to some areas. The reverse is made from another pair of jeans, and is an envelope style with snaps (press studs), finished with vintage buttons and a Fire Horse Textiles label.
The pillow measures approx 18.5" (47 cm) square, when stuffed (measuring to the extremities). A hollow fiber pad is included.
