With a striking black and white tone that invokes the principles of Yin and Yang (or "Yeeb and Yaj" in Hmong cosmology) where darkness and brightness interact, these cushion covers will be a perfect complement to your bedroom or living room. Hmong legend suggests that only wise people will regulate their lives according to the balance of these universal forces – adding further meaning to the Ram’s horn (representing “Wisdom”) adornment.
Hand-loomed with love in the hilly hemp-producing areas of Ha Giang, this cover casts a clear elegance and sense of timeless style, while retaining hemp's earthy look and its reputation for shape-keeping strength and durability. Perhaps the ethnic style will strike up heartfelt memories of faraway places you've travelled. What better way to warm your heart and your home!

Dyed hemp/embroideries: Dry clean is recommended. If hand washing, wash separately in cold water. Do not soak. Gently wring and hang separately with embroideries face up.
Indigo: Dry clean with a professional cleaner experienced with indigo is recommended, particularly for decor items. For hand washing, wash separately in cold water, gently agitate and then discard the water. Repeat this process a few times. Do not soak. After washing, gently wring out the garment and then hang separately to dry. Do not use bleach. You may also use a mild solution of cold water and vinegar to further set the dye.
The use of detergent may cause the loss of texture and density of the Indigo dyed fabric. This may also cause color irregularity to our garments. If soap must be used, we recommend using a mild detergent such as Woolite.
While we do the utmost to pre-treat fabrics and embroideries to minimize bleeding, VCP products use a natural coloring that may still be subject to residual bleeding. Do not wash dyed product with other garments.
