No.7 - Biri Biri Palm, Barkcloth, and Handwoven Cotton Square
18" x 18" Will vary slightly from photo. Fully lined with invisible side zipper. Pillow form not included.
The name comes from the over two (biri) under two (biri) twill structure that is used to create the plaited surface. Each piece is made by hand - from drying and stripping the Enkindukindu palm to plaited the thin strips together. The reverse of this pillow is handwoven, 100% Ugandan cotton grown and processed at Fine Spinners Uganda Ltd. It is beautifully woven on countermarch floor looms.
Our TOUCH collection offers a curated selection of bespoke pillows and floor runners. Each is designed with texture, form, and function in mind.
