New in Store - Ginkgo leaf inspired cushion cover

 The newest item in our store is this lovely throw pillow embroidered with ginkgo leaves.

I love everything Japanese from their food to the simple elegance of Japanese decor.One of the many symbols used in Japanese decor is the ginkgo leaf. For centuries, the people of Japan—and of the world—have been inspired by the beauty of the ginkgo tree and its unusually leaves. The ginkgo leaf is a popular motif in Japanese art, ceramics, textiles, family crests, symbols or logos. In the East, it is considered a symbol of longevity, hope, resilience and peace. The tree itself is know to live for over 2000 years.

This cushion cover is made from art silk fabric paneled and elegantly embroidered with ginkgo leaves. The fabric is in pastel shades of peach, gray and white with a teal blue silk band , the leaves have been embroidered in shades of brown and blue.

It has also been finished with our signature invisible zip. The size is 16X16 inches but can be custom made in the size you require.

 I would like to dedicate this blog post to Japanese people even as they recover from disaster. My heart and prayers go out to them. This leaf is symbolic of who they are as a people and I wish them hope and blessings at this time.
