There are several kinds of Fukusa but not all are appropriate to be used in the construction of pillows. The ones we use are traditionally used by the Japanese to cover an important ceremonial gift during its presentation. They are a woven square of silk or silk and metallic fabric and are hand woven with intricate loom embroidery. In addition, some of these Fukusa also have hand embroidered highlights. Fukusa that are suitable for pillows and are in acceptable condition are becoming increasingly scarce and hard to find. And as Fukusa become more scarce, the prices have also increased dramatically. Fukusa are a beautiful, disappearing piece of Japanese cultural history.
Our Fukusa pillows are all one-of-a-kind pillows with backing fabrics, trims and tassels individually selected for each pillow. All of our pillows are filled with feather/down inserts. The Fukusa pillows we offer are made using mostly antique or vintage (around 50 to 100 years old) gift coverings. These pillows are generally 24" x 24" or 20" x 20" but ocasionally are a smaller size.
