Using Antique Saris


This Antique Indonesian Bamboo Table and Stool Set available on Etsy is quite lovely, but what intrigued me most was that the stools have been upholstered using antique quilted saris. Remnants of antique kimonos and saris are quite easy to find on places like eBay and Etsy and using them to upholster stools, benches, ottomans, and the like is a wonderful idea to borrow.

This is a gorgeous set. I love the use of the antique fabric here. The colors and intricate pattern work are especially beautiful.

I have some great old fabrics from my favourite textile place and can't wait to find something like this to do with them.
